Classic scenes from China either Real or Imagined.

These are a few pictures from Shanghai. The whole time we have been here, the country has not been any sense typical to ideas you may have about the country before you get here.

People have a great deal of personal freedom here and the culture is on the vanguard of modern art and technology.

So when I spied these images in Shanghai, anachronistic images of China- I had to photograph them, utterly typical photos to what western media portrays China to be: young men in oversized military uniforms and old men playing the flute like some bad CCTV (Chinese National Television)advert-Experience the mysteries of the orient- China, tourism destination 2008.
