Photographer's Note

The pace of change sometimes outstrips the ability to deliver it. Keeping the balance is a constant struggle as old Chongqing gives way to the new. Regeneration strips away the old at an alarming rate whilst landmark projects recreate that which was lost in previous eras. Personal motorised transport is on the increase whilst the aging fleets of buses grunt their way around the city. A precarious labour force of 50,000 Bang Bang men carry the goods and materials of the city around on their shoulders whilst the emerging middle class walk their toy dogs for show. The rural workforce enters and leaves the city like breath entering and leaving the body with each swing of the economy....and sometimes you can even catch a glimpse of a blue sky.
