Leben presents Daniel Hjorth’s delicate portrait of Copenhagen, juxtaposing scenes of large-scale urban development with the mundaneness of everyday urban life.
Hjorth’s lens shows delicate attention to the often ignored material debris of a city in a state of eternal maintenance and becoming: piles of dirt, scrambled surfaces, and the invisibilized laborers and building sites of urban futures. He portrays these unlikely spaces with the same solemn poetry as he does with people, particularly youths or workers; together, they form an idiosyncratic and sentimental portrait of a city charged with immense static energy, much like the hair of an unknown woman depicted in these pages as she steps onto a bus.
