Media artist JT Singh has blessed us with yet another spellbinding trip through Shanghai, this time leaving behind its iconic skyline and instead weaving its way through the lives of locals in frenetic fashion.
While many gorgeous videos focus on Shanghai’s skyscrapers, lights and glamour, “Shanghai Forever” is a roller coaster ride of dizzying transitions through the historic shikkumen neighborhoods at the center of the city, and into the homes of residents, capturing them working, relaxing and living their lives amid the everyday chaos of our fair city.
