Like most cities in China, Guangzhou is in a constant state of flux. New projects, new ideas and new forms of cultural identity are constantly displacing what came before. The pace of development is often dizzying; old buildings are torn down to be replaced by new structures in a matter of months or short years.

I'm interested in recording parts of the transformations that occur here on a daily basis; the tension and collision of old and new.
