Photographs Capture What Remains Of ‘Old Shanghai’


For his series Phantom Shanghai, Canadian photographer Greg Girard points his lens to a city in a moment of significant change. For decades, Shanghai remained frozen in time, then almost overnight came a rush to modernize set in motion by the booming Chinese metropolis Beijing. In an attempt to make up for lost time, entire neighborhoods were demolished, hundreds of thousands of residents displaced and a heritage suddenly erased. Girard, who was living in Shanghai at the height of this change, chose to document the transformation he was seeing before his eyes: two versions of a city trying to occupy the exact same space.
