Tales from developing hell
The soundtrack of China is the sound of a jackhammer. Build, demolish, buy, expropriate, speculating .. the Chinese construction and real estate fallow is completely overheated. Consequences for society, environment and international economy are huge. „Tales from Developing hell“ deals with some of those aspects in large-scale photo collages. The images consist of many hundreds of individual photographs, Eva Hartmann has collected from March to May along the densely populated east coast of China. The pictures are like the subject complex and detailed. They invite the viewer to linger and explore. The project was supported with the "Canon Profifoto Förderpreis" award.
