Photographer Cody Ellingham Captured These Stunning Series Of Images To Help Preserve The “Memories Of Shanghai’s Forgotten Streets”

As aging and ornately beautiful ‘Shikumen’ lane houses are torn down across Shanghai, a New Zealand photographer has set out on a mission to capture the historic streets before it’s too late.

Photographer Cody Ellingham has embarked on a project to explore the intricate communal Shikumen lane houses unique to Shanghai’s oldest districts, as part of his Shanghai Streets series.

The structures, part inspired by the Chinese ‘Hutong’ style housing of the capital and heavily influenced by French and British colonial and art deco styles, were built in their thousands between the end of the 19th century and World War Two.
