A contemporary film noir photo-montage from indie photographer Maarten van der Meer: a nocturnal journey through an urban landscape in stark black and white imagery.
You gave me a tour in your city last night
The city that never sleeps…
is but the city that sadly weeps
Where a man could die in a subway,
No one would ever notice
Where the remnants of lovers linger,
their lip prints left behind,
No one would ever wonder
if love will ever find them.
Where the dust in the streets
carries the memories of thousands,
No one would ever treasure.
