Two Chinese characters make up the name of Shanghai, 上 (shàng, "upon") and 海 (hǎi, "sea"), together meaning "Upon-the-Sea". In the process of modernisation to become one of the global financial centres, the Longtang communities of narrow interconnected passageways in this old city of Shanghai are fast being replaced with high-rise apartments and shopping malls. This artist’s book consists of selected 47 photographs from Zhou HanShun’s project titled “Once Upon The Sea”, which documents the last remaining and disappearing Longtang neighbourhoods, primarily in the Hongkou, Yangpu and Huangpu districts of Shanghai. The book is digitally printed on Chinese xuan paper, stitched, and bound by hand.
