City dreamers

Documentary photography underlines the ever-changing city of tomorrow

I am an enterprise manager at the Shanghai Construction Engineering Group, and photography is my biggest hobby, taking up most of my spare time. It has been dozens of years since I bought the Seagull DF-1, the first camera in my life, with the six months of income I saved in 1984.

By chance, I participated in a photography activity on the theme of "Finding the Most Beautiful People". During my exploration, I suddenly realized and discovered around me a group of such beautiful people-the construction builders in the city. As a member of the construction industry, it gives him an inbuilt advantage than outsiders, and I also have the responsibility and obligation to the public by record the worthwhile endeavor of these builders.

From then on, I began to focus on photographing urban construction and the builders, especially now that China's development has attracted world attention and admiration. The era of great development has created space and potential for the art of photography, and it has also nurtured the public with lots of wonderful and touching moments.
