This is Shanghai

Shanghai’s skyline got to show off its better side in last year’s Skyfall, but photographer Rob Whitworth and urban explorer JT Singh, have gone one better with this spectacular portrayal of the 21st-century giant.

In 1980 Shanghai had no skyscrapers. It now has at least 4,000 — more than twice as many as New York. ‘This is Shanghai’ explores the diversities and eccentricities of the metropolis that is Shanghai going beyond the famous skyline.

For all its pollution and censorship I miss China.

  1. Amazing. After a few years living there, I don’t miss Shanghai even for one second, but the architecture is damn cool. Great hardware, shit software, as they say.
