Faces of China: Shanghai

Shanghai is the spectacular meeting point of modern and antique; traditional and urbanised; diversity and community. It is the equilibrium of colourful chaos and ancient order. But it’s not just the faces and fashions that make Shanghai so magical – but the place itself. The city is especially beautiful because the buildings look like library shelves, and every window is a story – which is why the faces of Shanghai are flesh and cement.

When the memories fade and faces become wrinkled and blurred, we can always return to the faces of Beijing, Xi’an morningsall-about adventures and the Muslim Quarter, or draw closer to finding China’s heart.
