Shanghai Skyline

Newer Older

This is Shanghai's equivalent of London's Canary Wharf - 15 years ago there was nothing here. This area now contains two of the tallest buildings in the world and a third one is under construction that will be taller still.

I have a similar shot with the sun behind, with the buildings in silhouette.

    Hi there Keith,
    I hope you are well. I am getting in touch as I am
    making a film for Al Jazeera English about economic development and pollution and have seen that you have some stunning images of Shanghai. We are trying to source a few images and as your photos are so nice I was wondering whether we might be able
    to use one or two of these for the film?

    If this might be of interest please drop me an email on orlando @ grainmedia.co.uk

    I very much look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much for
    your time and best wishes,

    Orlando von Einsiedel
