Photographer's Note

Before visiting Shanghai, I thought that in China streets are full of bicycles, everywhere is very crowded, most people live in small traditional houses, food has a bad taste and .... But to my astonishment, what I saw was quite contrary to my expectations.
Shanghai has been totally reconstructed in last ten years and transformed to a modern city with highest standards, even much better than Dubai. Buildings have a modern architecture, there're so many skiscrapers, people wear fashionable western clothing and listen to pop music. Everywhere you see world class trade marks: Cocacola, KFC, Buick, Samsung, Nike, HP,Benz and so on. Nearlly all these companies have factories to make their products locally.
The only thing which has remained traditional is the language and food. Shanghai is the best city of China and its doorway. Though there're still chinese who don't have access even to electricity, but the country is booming with a two digit growth rate and in near future it will be totally transformed to a modern and developed country.
