Invisible Theatre by Tim Gao

Tim Gao is a freelance photographer based in Shanghai, China. Street photography is not just a sharp triggering of shutter to shape the outside world in the form of light and shadow. It is simultaneously a curious observation and emotional perception of what’s happening in the ordinary streets at any moment when unpredictable dramas and realities are actually taking place.

 “I have lived in Shanghai for over 9 years and I explore Shanghai, where urban city and residential lanes are hidden and unknown to me and impact my emotional attachment to the city. Street photography not only enables me to create a documentary view of the unique Shanghai street and the culture behind it,  but also reveals the extraordinary and metaphorical aspect of Shanghai – an invisible theatre of mystery, drama, unease and nostalgia.”
