Past & Present



‘Past & Present came about following a visit to China. I was fortunate to visit a not overly well-known village that sat at the foot of the Great Wall of China. While there, I learned how the residents of the small village, were to be relocated to new high-rise buildings being built to enable the development of the area to attract tourism.

The village itself was like stepping back 500 years in time, its residents living in very basic and simplistic houses, with the random western artefacts, like the New York baseball cap hanging on a nail within a stone-walled bedroom, a possible gift from a rare tourist.

The story portrayed in this image is of modern society encroaching on history. The buildings represent the sea of rapidly expanding high-rises that fill the urban landscape of Shanghai. Their existence and influence overshadow the amazing historical culture, represented by the stone wall and ghost-like skeletal trees, from the small village.
