Summary

  • Artistic photographic portraits of one of the most fascinating cities in the world
  • Includes 54 large-format photographs

Cubes as far as the horizon, lost in a grey-brown haze. Motorways with several levels, without beginning, without end, built on pylons; small houses ducking down to the ground in between, like forgotten belongings. Thousands of windows in a heaven-storming concrete wall; above them a motionless sky. The skyline seems to have been cut into the soberly illuminated night with a scalpel.

Shanghai, an illusion in glistening mist, colorful shades, hard lines.

Since 2002, the photographers have accompanied Shanghai during its emergence as a world metropolis, the brachial farewell from the ancient Asian city, replaced by mega-structures.

The focal point of their photographic oeuvre is the architecture of the street. This is an essay on the topic of the urban landscape.

Text in English and German.
