Mirko Arganese Phantomcity

In Phantomcity the citizens have a different and fleeting consistency that is unknown to most, it’s hidden somewhere in the world and no one is allowed to cross the borders. 
Through mind control the citizens are forever kept in a hypnotic state. But in spite of everything, some manage to break free from mental cages imposed by the system and escape from the prison.

Based in Milan, Mirko Arganese is an Italian street photographer passionate by the endless stream of unique encounters one can make in the city. In the tradition inspired by the 60s and 70s American masters Garry Winogrand and Lee Friedlander, Mirko’s work aim to identify uncanny situations and life scenes that can tell the story of our contemporary societies within the urban sphere.
