These Cardboard Cities Have a Population of Exactly One

Italian digital artist Francesco Romoli is not the first to build whimsical cities using a bit of Photoshop magic—remember the guy who crafted physically impossible architecture? Or the artiste who whipped up Frankenstein constructions?—but he has set himself apart by transforming architectural photos into flat cardboard backdrops. After creating each built environment, Romoli casts high-impact lighting and adds a solitary downtrodden man, making each collage from his Imaginary Towns a visual depiction of loneliness and frayed memories. More photos, below.
