The Nanjing Lu – Lu means street – in Shanghai is 5.5 kilometers long and is named after the Chinese city Nanjing. It was inaugurated as “Park Lane” in 1845; for a long time before that it was simply known as “main street” in Chinese. In the 1930s there were casinos and shops there. The current length of the street arose from the merging of the former „Bubbling Well Road“, which lies in the western part of the city today, and of the former “East Nanjing Road”.
It lies in the city center, runs in an east-west direction, and is one of the longest shopping streets in the world. It begins in the East with the “Bund”, a famous promenade on the banks of the Huangpu River, where it remains a pedestrian zone for one kilometer. It then continues westward past the downtown “People’s Square” park, past the Jing’an Buddhist temple, and further toward the many flagship stores of international fashion labels. The city sees a million visitors each day, comprised of Chinese and international tourists.
Tradition, history, wealth, the fight for survival, as well as how this economically-dynamic developing country is changing are portrayed here. Personal work, 2014.
