Admiration and Aspiration

The Shanghai Bund almost doesn’t feel Chinese anymore, yet symoblizes China’s economic growth and new position as great power. At first sight, this is a picture of some people admiring the view. For me, it also illustrates the many contrasts in China: old versus new, rich versus poor, East versus West. More specifically the aspiration of the common people to become part of this new and modern China. A world so close, yet so far.

  1. I’ve never been to Shangai but when I see pictures like this, I wish to visit this amazing town.
