"At the beginning of the 21st century, Shainghai is in the midst of a breathtaking process of transition. That transition affects people, their way of life, the homes they live in and their work environment. This book of photographs by Paul Harris focuses on that process of transition: from the science-fiction skyline of Pudong to the historic architecture of the Bund; from the courtyards and lanes with their longtang housing to the modern high-rises, from the muddy Huangpu River with its conveyor belt of ships and its soaring modern brides to the ancient watertowns of Xinchang and Zhujia Jiao."
