Entropy by Ari Marcopoulos. Published by Roma Publications.
Marcopoulos’ photos are pervasive serenity, an oasis in a frenetic urban landscape. His work is a reminder of hope against all odds—a reminder that we can connect, that we can attain fleeting serendipity and even love in the face of apparent futility. Moving through Entropy, I feel reassured that we are indeed allowed to seek out those bonds that join us together as human beings beyond the borders of nation, culture, history, and time.
