As Shanghai modernizes and seeks acceptance as an international city, buildings and neighborhoods that were once preserved simply by lack of intervention are now being purposefully demolished. Phantom Shanghai is a spectacular look at a Shanghai that won't survive the vision the country has for itself. For the past five years, Canadian photographer Greg Girard has been photographing the city's buildings, shops, homes, and neighborhoods. This stunning photographic journey is a look at present-day Shanghai, where politically inspired neglect meets politically inspired development.
