My father Guobo has lived in Shanghai since 1955 when he returned to China until 2010 when he passed away. The city has become his second hometown.
In the beginning of 1980s, my father took his camera and started his exploration in Shanghai. Ever since then, he has kept taking photos for nearly twenty years until he was too old.
In 2009, I made a selection of around 200 photos out from his more than 1,000 films, and edited them into this photography album Light and Shadow of Shanghai, in which you will find the loneliness and the happiness of a photography fan.
Time & Space Traces of Shanghai
As majored in architecturehimself, Guo Bo always paid more attention to architectures. But as he has left us, the original documents and background information of a huge amount of photos are not available any more. In order to maximize the value of those documentary photos, more further research are needed later, which will may be my task in future, but also need the help from you who are familiar with Shanghai.
Guo Yun was born in Shanghai in 1956 and went to Japan in 1981. He is working in the Department of Photography of Asahi Shimbun, Japan.
