Shanghai and thereabout…

9 years of travelling to Shanghai and a couple of the cities around, with the camera as companion of course results in lots of photos. When life took a different turn a photo exhibition was a perfect way to get going in the new direction.

Shanghai is a city of contrasts. The neon coloured skyscrapers opposes the simple street life in the long tangs, but there’s of course an entire scale in between. The difference between rich and poor is huge. It’s also a society where you can be certain that someone knows what you are doing, but that is in no way unique in today’s world.

For a photography it’s an amazing place that I’m sure to visit again.
