An inhabitant of Qingdao

Over the past decades, the emancipation of urban planning has seen a continuous and abrupt reconfiguration of urban layouts in large Chinese cities. “Since the age of 19, my friends and I have been going to buildings that are about to be demolished in Qingdao and taking many photos of the old city centre, construction camps and forgotten corners of the city.This may be the last time I document my city, the world is changing fast and when I come back all this may be gone.”

Shun Zhai was born in QingDao in 2001. He currently lives and works between China and Italy where he continues his artistic studies.
