Lanwei

My brother and I visited the Lanwei/Decaying End exhibition at St Andrews Museum.

Its the first solo photography exhibition by Stanley Wong (anothermountainman). The photographs are part of an ongoing project documenting abandoned, incomplete building projects from across Asia; building projects aborted when the frenzied property boom in China and surrounding countries collapsed in the late 1900s.

The photos are big with differing style - some with staged figures - but my favourites were the huge tattered buildings...
