A series of photographs and a found object on the persistence of memory
A demolished site in the heart of Shanghai is not an extraordinary view. During the constant city expansion, millions of people have been forcefully dislocated and moved at least once during their lives.

This portfolio consists of 3 panels presenting 19 photographs and a playing card installed in a glass dome.
This collection is currently available for acquisition and exhibition.
