Photographing China

A recent three week trip to China (mostly for fun but with a little business thrown in for good measure) provided an overabundance of photo opportunities and a range of fascinating experiences to impart with readers of the PhotoBox blog. With the Olympics soon to commence in Beijing and unprecedented economic growth stimulating a building boom the likes of which the world has never seen, the difficulty wasn’t deciding when to snap a photo but having the wherewithal to put the camera away at all!

During the trip, I visited dynamic and entrepreneurial Shanghai; the original ancient Chinese capital city of Xi’an; the rural outpost of Yangshuo; and the magnificent and alluring modern capital of Beijing. I look forward to sharing my photographic adventures in China in the weeks to come! First stop on the tour is Shanghai, an ever hustling town that gives New York a real run for its money when it comes to laying claim to the title of ‘the city that never sleeps.’
