A long trip across four major cities in the north of China: Beijing, Xi’an, Xining and Lanzhou offered me the opportunity to assemble this photographic series focusing on the rapid transformation of Chinese urban territory. The series shows the common profile of the cities, the massive urban modernisation, the sharp contrast with the historical areas and the sense of strangeness resulting from stereotyped and repetitive urban planning.
