Huangpu River, Shanghai time-lapse

Close

Overview

This time lapse captured on the morning of the double eleventh (November 11), 2016, demonstrates constant marine activity.

Shanghai is the largest city (by population) in the world, and has the world’s busiest container port.

From my office on the 55th floor, I was able to see 360 degree views of the city and apart from one stretch of water with wind towers, the skyline was entirely a built environment.

As this time lapse advances, tall shadows move across the river. These are shadows of three ‘skyscrapers’: Jin Mao Tower (421 m), Shanghai World Finance Centre (492 m), and Shanghai Tower (632 m), which together comprise the heaviest built environment on the planet!

From Our Clients

I worked with Andrew on a photography project that involved a high level of visual complexity for a multinational client. Andrew was clear and professional in his briefing, but at the same time, was open to other ideas and approaches.
