Shanghaied Week in Review

A bunch of my photos showed up on the Juxtapoz website this week, including some graffiti shots from Shanghai. Also, PhotoBox published a few of my Shanghai pics in the first of hopefully many more posts on their blog about my photographic adventures in China. Oh yeah, I uploaded several more Shanghai photos to Flickr too. 

Enough already with the Shanghai photos!? Okay, okay.  American Librarian in Freiburg, Chris Mavergames, shares his Expat Perspective with us about a recent visit from dear ole mom. Thanks Chris!

And, of course, there's a whole new heapin' mess o' London Daily Photos just waiting for you to take a gander at!

The Trespass Alliance: Inside Urban Art group show at Andipa Gallery signifies a shift of urban art's almost exclusive presence in East London galleries to London's more chi-chi western postcodes.

Shanghai Graffiti Photos (Juxtapoz)

Generally speaking, graffiti in Shanghai is an extremely rare sight. Buildings come and go at such a rapid pace that, even if an intrepid artist had touched up a particular wall, there's a good chance that said wall would have been demolished soon after ... The exception to this rule is Moganshan Road, where you can hardly take a step without spotting some graff. The area around Moganshan Road is Shanghai's art district where, luckily, the art isn't just confined to the galleries and shops.

Photographing China (PhotoBox)

A recent three week trip to China (mostly for fun but with a little business thrown in for good measure) provided an overabundance of photo opportunities and a range of fascinating experiences to impart with readers of the PhotoBox blog. With the Olympics soon to commence in Beijing and unprecedented economic growth stimulating a building boom the likes of which the world has never seen, the difficulty wasn’t deciding when to snap a photo but having the wherewithal to put the camera away at all!

Beijing Graffiti (Juxtapoz)

Osburn reports, “Similar to Shanghai, Beijing doesn't appear to have much graffiti, particularly for a city of its immense size. Still, if you know where to look, there's plenty to see. One brilliant part of town to view street art is the 798 Art Zone, an abandoned military electronics complex that's now one of Beijing's handful of thriving artist districts.”

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiya! (Friday the 13th of June, 2008)

I'm back from my pilgrimage to China's mysterious Theretrdspectientower with all sorts of stories to share. Unfortunately, I ain't got around to sorting all those stories out yet. Stay tuned for plenty of posts about my trip in the next week or so.

While I was gone, some of my photos were on exhibit at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds. I'm bummed to have been unable to make it up there to check it out but pleased nonetheless. ontoLondon's Daily Photos continued to be posted during my break as well.

Since returning to London, I've paid a visit to an excellent Japanese restaurant with a couple of the folks from Qype along with a few other bloggers and caught a piece of a rainbow for PhotoBox. I've also been pleased to find out that ontoLondon's contributing photographer, Anna Krsikova, will have some of her work in an upcoming show at London's AOP Gallery. Awesome!
