July 2011, Wuhan, China

By the time I was back to Wuhan in 2011, the city had plunged into a phase of massive construction. Before new buildings could rise, the old ones were to be torn away. There were still a few household who stuck to the buildings’ last moment.  The neighborhood Xian’an Fang was by no means what it had been back in 2006. Who owns this city’s future and who owns its memories?

二零一一年夏天回家,武汉已经进入大建设阶段,那些常去的汉口小街一点一点破落,有的则被刷上了新漆,变成了所谓的老街区,曾经的小里弄里剩下几户零星的居民。二零零六年拍的咸安坊俨然不在,只剩下我们的迷茫和期望,谁是谁非,谁计划着这座城市的未来,谁又留存着这座城市的记忆。
