Back in Time~ Shanghai

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

the river of humanity~ a never ending dance

They come and they go, the are born, they grow, they get old, they die, some say they are reborn, to live again, to age again and to die again. This begs the most obvious and age old question: “why are we here?”

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.
