Default Derelict Shanghai

Much has been made of the amazing rise & rise of Shanghai. e.g Over the last 10 years alone more high rise towers have been built than contained in the whole of Manhattan. However little is shown of the demolition of the old neighbourhoods to make way for these mega constructions.

This area, by the side of the Suzhou Canal will soon be replaced by new residential towers similar to those seen in the background. In the meantime a few old families still eke out a living growing vegetables amongst the rubble and collecting rubbish for recycling.

Stunning series, particularly, the "I used to play here" image.

Interesting juxtapositions - well composed. The price of "progress."

Very nicely done, interesting contrasts, "i Used To Play Here" tells me the story best.

I agree with what has already been said. I like all of them, but "I used to play here" is especially poignant. Very nicely photographed.

Love the series, you've done a great job of telling a story/showing two sides of your city. I love all of them, but find the abandoned child's shoe very compelling.
