In his coffee table book Metropolis, Alan Schaller presents city life in his own individual way, setting standards in modern street photography. For all lovers of spectacular black-and-white photography, the coffee table book Metropolis is a must-have, because there is hardly anything comparable on the market. In a unique way, Alan Schaller depicts urban contrasts that big cities like New York, London, Paris, Tokyo or Istanbul hold in store in their architecture and everyday life.

In the photo book Metropolis, Alan Schaller elevates city views to an art form, playing with light and perspective and creates a world in black and white that captivates the viewer. This is what fans of Schaller love about his work. The photo artist manages to capture moments for eternity.

Accompany Alan Schaller in his coffee table book Metropolis on 240 pages through the most famous metropolises on earth. Look forward to impressive black-and-white photographs, with extraordinary city views in which people and architecture merge in an intimate moment.


London-based photographer Alan Schaller specialises in black and white photography. His works are often abstract, contain elements of surrealism as well as geometry and are characterised by high contrasts. At the same time, they always illuminate the realities and diversities of human life. He prefers to photograph in London, Havana, Istanbul, New York and Kyoto.
Alan Schaller's work is regularly exhibited, most recently at the Saatchi Gallery London, Leica Galleries in London, Boston, Washington D.C., Sydney and Melbourne and The Edit Space in Milan. In addition, his work has been published in The Guardian, The New York Times, The Financial Times, The Independent, The Washington Post and The Evening Standard, among others. 
Globally, he has worked with brands including Apple, Philips, Huawei, Union Coffee, Xiaomi phones, Kew Gardens, Nokia, Huntsman of Savile Row and London Fashion Week. Alan Schaller is an ambassador for Leica cameras.
