Document China

Earlier we spotlighted the amazing China photographs of Greg Girard. Fritz Hoffmann, Girard's partner in the photo agency Document China, also has some terrific work that can be seen here. Howard W. French, the Shanghai correspondent for The New York Times also carries a vintage Rolleiflex on his travels and has been posting some of the arresting results here and here. Janek Żdżarski, a Polish photographer who's been living in Beijing for the past couple of years, keeps a photoblog here. Meanwhile, Robert Vanderhist's photos of Shanghai from the early '90s already seem ancient, capturing some of what's since been erased by the city's supersonic development process.
