Shanghai never fails to surprise you. As a photographer living in this city, you can never be at a loss for impressions. Even time travel is possible if you are willing to go out of your way to visit the film park in Songjiang. Every time I went there I was able to capture a fantastically surreal film set where time stops and life is reenacted to show a sense of times gone by. And where else in the world can you just walk up to the set and photograph it?

I love Shanghai <3

ugly

After yesterday’s post and reading all the responses from everyone about guns, violence and war, I have been in contemplation about the subject. Today I visited a film studio in Songjiang, Shanghai and one of the sets photographed here depicts a burnt down, war ravaged village. It got me thinking about war, and the years that I had to experience it in Lebanon first hand since early childhood and I could not find one pretty thing about it. War is ugly, its starts ugly and it ends ugly.
