Shanghai Neighborhood

‘Shanghai Neighborhood’ is a documentary project recording the nostalgic charm of Shanghai daily life of ordinary people most of whom are photographed in the residential lanes (also known as Longtang) hidden behind the high rising flats. The daily life goes quite like the traditional lifestyle. The local residents from nearby communities will gather and chat in the courtyard or in front of their houses on a regular basis. However, many of the few remaining traditional residential areas are to be demolished, making way for city urbanization.
