Architecture | Beijing & Shanghai
Last month I was fortunate enough to take a trip to China. I had no clue what to expect. Ultimately, I returned feeling humbled in an overwhelmingly complete way. The colossal scale of life and all of its structures, populations, and processes often rendered me smaller than insignificant, a feeling difficult to articulate. As a young American, I found it to be a place that is closer to alien than anywhere I previously encountered.
While traveling between Beijing and Shanghai, I was overcome with the belief that anyplace I saw in between could have just as easily been the destination. It is a place where texture is everywhere, often on the underside of its absence. I believe that theses photographs do far more descriptive justice to the feeling of being there than any words could.
