Mindaugas Gabrenas‘ latest cityscape project Back to the City was created living in New York City and traveling around the US. Here author combines his passion for landscape and cityscape photography by mixing an American wild landscape with New York City cityscape.

Presenting works in diptych Gabrenas is trying to reveal unexpected visual parallels between two antagonistic concepts: natura et urbi.

Actually there‘s no need to come back to nature to distance yourself from the outside world. Seems that even busy New York City streets has enough of seclusion and melancholy – concrete jungle can make you feel forgotten and lonely like in outermost Oregon coast. Nowadays extremely popular Rousseau’s concept back to nature here is rephrased intentionally – author aims to share with us his sympathy both for the apple-tree and for the Big Apple.

Back to the City is series of black&white diptych, all the pictures were taken between 2012-2014, using medium format film cameras.
