Hyper-Dystopia

Media tends to show us images of dystopias as dark, monotone places, with dirt and detritus everywhere, the dregs of civilisation living on a metaphorical precipice.  But a dystopia could just as easily be formed in a world full of light and colour.  The 'hyper-real' environments that we have built in some parts of our world, far from being places of joy, can be viewed as constructs of despair.  The images here (taken in Southern California) imagine a world where reality has been pushed to an extreme, creating a chilling graphic novel cityscape.
