Photographer's Note

There are many small areas around Shanghai where the buildings date back from the Communist regime, back to an era far back, in another world it would seem. Most of these buildings will soon be destroyed to make place for imposing and impersonal skyscrapers built in the rush to modernise Shanghai...

This is one of those areas in the downtown part of Shanghai where some people already have started to be evicted, others are squatting in houses left in shambles...

I'm usually more of a photojournalistic style photographer, but this is definitely more like a documentary photographer's take on it...

--->Handheld, Nikon F90x, minimal postwork (levels, dodge and burn, cloning)
