Shang­hai 2002

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

The women of China are of­ten pic­tured with an out­dated, stereo­typ­i­cal im­age of sub­mis­sive and sub­ju­gated ladies, qui­etly wait­ing at the beck and call of men. Through­out China, the women of Shang­hai are renowned for be­ing beau­ti­ful and del­i­cate crea­tures. But at home they are known as “tricky wives” who make their hus­bands do as they say. At the of­fice, they are re­lent­less pro­fes­sion­als who dis­play equal, if not more, com­pet­i­tive­ness than men. These women like­wise take the lead all over China in fash­ion, dis­play­ing such deco­rous and au­da­cious tastes to keep the coun­try watch­ing. In a tour de force through this an­cient city and fa­bled cul­ture, Bet­tina Rheims and Serge Bramly beau­ti­fully stage pho­to­graphs of real women from all walks of life. En­gaged in an ar­dent search for the spirit of Shang­hai’s women, Rheims and Bramly in­stead found a place so fast-paced, so quickly evolv­ing, that their quest was ren­dered moot.
