Photographer's Note

The old warehouse district of Huangjeuping is also the current home of the Sichuan Institute of Fine Arts - one of the largest art institutions in China - at least for another week or so. The fact of the matter is that a brand new campus has been established at 'University Town' away from the urban centre of Chongqing proper - the 'town' will house 200,000 students of all disciplines - nicely contained and isolated from the city. It seems double edged - very nice surroundings, beautifully built facilities but so much easier to control student unrest! At least that was my conclusion...and one which I found shared amongst others who knew their recent domestic history. What will happen to the economy of Huangjeuping once all the students go (the new arts campus will house 8,000)? A big new market complex is planned, creative industries may develop in the area, modern high rise apartment blocks are sure to follow....

For me this image has many layers of meaning.....
