Two workers are bending new steel together in the early morning sun on a construction site in Shanghai. Overhead, the maglev train, and several highways crisscross and branch.
I was fortunate to be there on an early Sunday morning, with the site open and people friendly and welcoming again.Tags:
Photography means painting with light. As I explore more and more of China, Asia and Europe, I find myself drawn to their people. While there is certainly grand nature out West, and incredible skyscrapers in the East, what makes this region special are the people building it, living in it and working hard to see their lives improve. While the latter is not always the case, it is striking to see how the mundane and the extraordinary combine everywhere. I am working on a section about the maglev construction; please have a look at the people over there.
Feel free to explore the galleries to find professional photos from China and photos from Asia, come back often as I add more and more photos to the site.
Leave me a message if you'd like to own a print, use some of the work, commission something special or just say Hi.
I got around to making the site mobile friendly, after doing this for my day-job on quite a number of sites. Yeah!
