Leaving Shanghai – Book Launch

John van Aitken & Jane Brake

Please join us at the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool, for the launch of the artist book Leaving Shanghai. Focusing on the mega city, this photo-text work is a critical reflection on the elevated city view through encounters with supertall buildings, hotels, observation decks, residential tower blocks, shopping centres and media imagery. Leaving Shanghai considers the spatial politics behind China’s economic success and the atmospheric conditions which affect photography and the air we breathe.

The launch event will include screenings, readings, guest speakers and a discussion about photography and the megacity.

The event is part of LOOK 19 Photo Biennial.
