Edward Hopper

Urban Alienation:
Urban sociology is the sociological study of social life and human interaction in
metropolitan areas. It is a normative discipline of sociology seeking to study the
structures, processes, changes and problems of an urban area and by doing so
providing inputs for planning and policy making.
Urban Alienation and Social Capital
Hopper was concerned with the psychological relationship between people and
places, especially within urban American cities
His works suggests an uneasy relationship with the place, and a diminished
relationship with people
Importantly he shows us places that were traditionally for meeting people, now
producing uneasy solitude
