Chongqing: City of Ambition
Lens Culture... Chongqing: City of Ambition - photographs and text by Ferit Kuyas. "...City of Ambition is a visit to one of the largest and fastest-growing cities in the world, Chongqing, China. The vast cityscapes and sheer dimensions of the city are almost surreal for me. Chongqing was granted municipal status in 1997, rather late compared to Shanghai. But the people of Chongqing are very eager to show the world, and their sister cities in China, how powerful they are. With the booming economy, this has lead to an explosion in city development. Today the municipality is populated by approximately 32 million people." Also... Chinese Smokers at Ferit Kuyas Projects.
