Photographer of the invisible, Frank Rodick traveled Tokyo, Paris, London, New York, digging deep to find the common denominator of all cities. Street corners, subways, businessman and passer-by become suddenly unfamiliar, repressed instincts peep out of an asphalt swamp. Hallucinations of sex and death, outcasted from the media flow, roam in bright daylight. Of Liquid Cities and Celestial Abattoirs is a non-euclidian space with its own set of rules where the raw power of the unconscious resurface through subliminal images.
Visceral and deranged, Of Liquid Cities and Celestial Abattoirs is a frightening roller-coaster run through the dark ocean of primal instincts hidden under the polished surface of modern metropolis.
