A city of great opportunities.
Look at the city from height of bird’s flight – the dream of any photographer. Before you had to arrange a helicopter ride or Charter a plane, and now enough to buy a drone. Modern technologies allow to take pictures and shoot great video, hovering high above the ground. In these photos, Shanghai, the largest by population city in the world.
These stunning photos were taken by German photographer Marc Simondon (Mark Siegemund). He now lives in the Chinese metropolis and by watching, how to live and develop the city. Urban landscapes, he devotes a special place in the portfolio. Most often, the mark tries to get to the most remote corners, where the person is physically difficult to get. To look away from the dizzying pictures taken among the skyscrapers, is simply impossible.
Shanghai is divided into two parts by the Huangpu river: on one Bank – a global financial business centre, and the other is an old city with narrow streets. The photographs of Mark Sigmund you can see the contrast, to feel the difference between the past and modernity.
The photographs skyscraper financial centre looks incredible: he is buried in the neon lights at night and the burning fire in the sunset. Another favorite object Mark, the world – famous television tower Oriental pearl TV tower (this tower the top five highest in the world).
In the old town, on the contrary, you can see the tiny houses, crowded summer festivals, vibrant celebration of the New year on the streets, decorated with flags.
In the near future in China intend to demolish old neighborhoods to erect in their place a modern high-rise building. Mark wistfully notes that many of the streets, which grew more than one generation of Shanghai people, will disappear. Now travelers are advised to watch the old quarters as soon they simply will no longer exist.
About his experience of living in Shanghai mark says: “When you live in such a huge city, it is difficult to find a quiet place. Thanks to drones, you can see quiet areas, where life flows slowly. I hope these Islands of calm will remain, they will not absorb an endless process of ubanization”.
