Big City Silhouettes (7 photos)

It's easy to feel insignificant in a big city. There are so many things to do, lots of cars, bikes, and scooters whizzing by, and tons of hectic street lights and urban noises all around us.

This series titled “People and Places” by English photographer Jasper James creates an interesting juxtaposition between the city of Beijing and its citizens. The thought-provoking photos leave the impression that although the city may be big, it is made up of thousands of individuals, who in their own unique way, make the modern metropolis special.
