Baixiaoci (白小刺), Shen Xiaoming (沈晓明) photographs Chinese government buildings


I get to travel often and have always enjoyed snapping photos of my travels especially building.  Recently came across Baixiaoci (白小刺),  Shen Xiaoming (沈晓明) on local Chinese TV, who is a photographer from Zhejiang and has spent the last few years taking portraits of new government buildings around China. The amount of construction around china is mind-blowing.
"From 2005 to 2006, China witnessed the biggest surge in the construction of government building, many of which are located in the new development zones. Such buildings have become the key strategy for the new zones to draw economy and draw investments, he says. The political symbolism comes of these buildings come in the second place."
