Our Gallery: Gotham City Revisited

04 Feb

Gotham City is the virtual capital of Dieselpunk. Once a nickname of New York City, introduced by good old Washington Irving in early 19th century (and derived from a Nottinghamshire village famous for its simpletons), it obtained an all-new meaning in 1930s, evolving into a synonym of all things dark. Modern Gotham can be found far from Manhattan. With a sharp eye and a bit of inspiration you can see every modern megalopolis as Gotham City – and Toronto (Ontario, Canada) is no exclusion.

Here are some photographs taken by Ryan aka Metrix X @ Flickr, from his Gotham City set:

NOTE: Some of the pictures were taken with the Contax IIIa film camera, 1953 vintage.
