Shanghai, City in Search of a Soul

Just want to share with you a feature story I photographed in this month’s issue of The Australian Financial Review Magazine titled Shanghai: City in Search of a Soul.

Written by Lisa Murray, it tells the story of a city that has undergone rapid transformation and reinvention, with a vast dichotomy of inhabitants, yet, regardless of its new found wealth in many ways it’s still unsure of its direction. As Lisa writes, “Shanghai has aspirations to become the cultural capital of Asia but it’s yet to develop the arts and cultural software to match its mega-metropolis hardware”

Unfortunately, asides from buying a copy at the news store, the article is only available online to subscribers, but I attach a couple sample images here, and please visit my web site for a broader selection of photos on the feature.

Shanghai - educated, urbane twenty somethings.

Shanghai - luxury brands and bling

Shanghai - rural workers and unskilled workers keep the city alive
