Phantom Shanghai succeeds as both an important historical document and a sumptuous collection of arresting urban photography by Greg Girard.
City in ruins Photographer Greg Girard has lived in Shanghai for several years, witnessing a city rapidly transforming at the expense of its cultural and architectural history. Venturing out at night to explore his adopted city, Girard records neighbourhoods of crumbling, low-density buildings that vanish within days to make way for skyscrapers. Our studio utilized restrained typography and supporting elements to provide a serene backdrop for this remarkable body of work. Having sold out of two printings, Phantom Shanghai succeeds as both an important historical document and a sumptuous collection of arresting urban photography.
