Guangzhouan was where I lived from the age of 11 to 16. Being a fast developing city in the south of China with a population of over 10 million, its changes have never stopped fascinating me. Under the rapidly rising economy and the construction boom in China, Guangzhou is one of the most ambitious cities looking to expand the size of its urban area, the edge has been constantly moving outwards and constantly changing.

I went to the end of the tube and bus routes and areas just off the ring expressway. Some of these places would soon be undergoing or have already been undergone massive urbanizing constructions while others have stayed as suburban villages with people living in a traditional way. I took the pictures to explore the visual language of the urban and the suburb, and to try to understand and connect with the city where I lived during my teenage years.
