Guangzhou: Portrait of a mega city

‘Portrait of a mega city’ was produced through collaboration with a selection of international journalism students at the Guangdong University of Foreign Language. With their help and local knowledge, English photographer Karl Child was able to explore the streets and traditional market towns that were the foundations of what is now an ever expanding mega-city and conurbation.

The images document the complex layers of the city, and the people housed within. From children returning home from school to the changing landscape and towering sky-scraping apartments casting shadows on the original architecture, the series documents every day life in China’s third biggest city, Guangzhou.
