Phantom Shanghai

Stunning photographs at The Distillery District this past Sunday. Images resonate through my head now. Phantom Shanghai's effect was like a sad flower creeping up through a crack in the cement. Greg Girard (see link) shows that there is life in even the most destitute of places. Snails in a contaminated Shanghai river. Homes built amid destruction. A discotheque for workers in a dim factory. There is life out there.

I was asked why I didn't post pics from the show, instead opting for an orchid shot near the front of the exhibit. Working in media you learn pretty fast that there can be serious consequences to sharing images that you don't have the rights to. I thought that an orchid in front of an industrial background was indicative of Phantom Shanghai's theme. For more images please visit greg Girard's site - link to the left. The Kowloon images are incredible.
