A Stunning Time-Lapse Video of Shanghai

Shanghai is China's largest, most international city, and, with phenomenal architecture both old and new, is a real feast for the eyes. In this fantastic time-lapse video, the Shanghai-based photographer Rob Whitworth portrays his city as one big perpetual motion machine. Interviewed by Asia Blog, Whitworth says that capturing the "infectious optimism" of Shanghai and other Asian cities is what drives his work.
