Back to China this week, to Shanghai and then to Pingyao for the PIP Festival. I'm told Robert Frank will be among the western visitors. Here are two pictures I made in Shanghai in September last year. This city is so strange and full of contrasts. Amazing!

I gave my friend and artist, Sid, the dummy of my TEXT book with the request that she make some constructive observations.
