Street Photography
Shanghai


Tim Gao is a freelance photographer from Shanghai, China. His black and white photographic works on Shanghai street revealed the mysterious and surreal dimension of the metropolitan and yet evolving city with complexity, chaos and uncertainty.

“Street photography is not just a sharp triggering of shutter to shape the outside world in the form of light and shadow – it is simultaneously a curious observation and emotional perception of what's happening in the ordinary streets at any moment, when unpredictable dramas and realities are actually taking place,” Tim Gao explained, “I have lived in Shanghai for over 9 years and I explore Shanghai, where urban city and residential lanes are hidden and unknown to me and impact my emotional attachment to the city. Street photography not only enables me to create a documentary view of the unique Shanghai street and the culture behind it, but also reveals the extraordinary and metaphorical aspect of Shanghai – an invisible theatre of mystery, drama and nostalgia.”
