Not many people in the West can say they are familiar with the city of Chongqing, but with its 32 million inhabitants, it is a colossus on the Yangtze river in south-western China. Ferit Kuyas was a frequent visitor and became totally fascinated by the megalomaniacal construction of the river region in the mist. We tried to capture the unique colour and subtlety of Kuyas’s images as well as the feeling of alienation on the edge of this enormous city with its gigantic construction projects.
