Shanghai Odyssey
by Homer Sykes
Publisher's Description
As Shanghai enters the 21st-century, this most dynamic of Chinese cities looks back over a decade of phenomenal growth. It is a focus for foreign investment and futuristic architecture, yet the city’s international past is still very much in evidence. In the crowded streets and shopping malls there is an unabashed enthusiasm for consumer-ism and a great capacity to enjoy whatever life has to offer.

Syke’s pictures range from moments of personal intimacy to industrial projects, and his work achieves a subtle chemistry between photo-journalism and fine art photography. The photographs are accompanied by perceptive captions and a lively chronology of historical events.
