Examining the dynamic of the urban streetscape, Antonio Cardoso uses the metropolis as a vantage point for photographing anonymous self-absorbed pedestrians, who are unaware of his voyeuristic observations.

These small self-contained photographs show a sole figure against a collision of façades and architectural details reduced to abstracted blocks of colour, pattern and texture. The strong geometrical lines and shapes in Cardoso’s compositions show his admiration for the “natural” beauty found in streetscapes. He comments on the superficiality and affect of the life of the city itself by capturing small urban vistas apparently flattened into stage sets
