I can’t believe it’s Friday already!
Already the time for the Friday photo by Carte Blanche.
Today we feature a photo by Tim Franco from his series Urban Shift. Enjoy!
Tim Franco is a French-Polish photographer based in Shanghai. Since 2005, he has been fascinated by the transformation of Chinese cities. He documents change through urban photography and keeps in tone with the underground art world and the social implications of urbanization. His book, “Shanghai Soundbites”, was released in June 2008 to depict the evolution of the alternative music scene in China and particularly Shanghai. Tim is a regular contributor to Le Monde and his work has been published in NRC, Wiwo, Global Journal, Architecture d’Aujourd’hui, The Fader, CNN online, Time Out, Urban.
Tim Franco’s collection of images on extreme urbanization in Shanghai was shot with large-format 4x5-inch film to emphasize every detail and the metamorphosing landscapes, which frequently juxtapose brand-new skyscrapers with ancient neighborhood alleys.
