A billboard in an old estate in Shanghai, filled to the corners with advertisements from
home-movers. The estate is gazetted for redevelopment into an upmarket entertainment
district like Xin Tian Di. There is a strange air of uncertainty in the estate, as the
residents will soon be required to move to new housing away from the city centre where
they are now.
This shot was taken last year on an urban study tour.i had only wanted to document the
billboard when i noticed this lethargic young child walking towards it from a distance. so i
waited for him to pass into my frame before pressing the shutter button.
