About: Carlos Cazalis and Megacities

Award winning documentary photographer Carlos Cazalis began documenting mega cities in 2005 when he was working on the habitat problems inside Sao Paulo. That pursuit led him further into the infrastructure problems in the city and then further out into the periphery of the city where more than 2/3 of the population lives.

Today Cazalis has gone on to document six major cities reaching or beyond the 20 million population mark. The environmental damage and mass urban growth of Dhaka, the psychological frenzy of Tehran’s double nature, the hidden slum of Osaka and its industrial wealth as Japan struggles through an economic crisis producing mass unemployment. To further explain the debate on megacities and their influence on humanity Cazalis is also documenting the effects of poor water distribution in Mexico City and will then go on to Lagos as Africa’s largest city.
