Photographer #073: Ferit Kuyas

Ferit Kuyas', Turkey, 1955, latests book Chongqing, City of Ambition was released in 2009. It is a series of photographs on one of the largest cities in the world, Chongqing, China. It is the city where his parents-in-law live. He stayed in the city that counts 32 million inhabitants on various occasions where he focused on the periphery of the city where the enormity might not be seen but rather felt. There is a natural haze in his images (although intensified by pollution). He feels the city is a metaphor for the current developments in China. The following images come from the series City of Ambition, Chinese Smokers and Shanghai Memories.
