Unreachable Dreams: The Silhouettes of Tianjin


In Tianjin, beneath a sky of gray and mist, workers perch atop a wall, their backs to the viewer, looking towards ongoing construction that remains unseen. The wall is adorned with posters showcasing luxurious modern apartments, labeled as "high-level constructions." These opulent homes stand in stark contrast to the reality of the laborers who erect them, a symbol of affluence they might never achieve for themselves. To the left, an immense crane looms, its tilt reminiscent of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The scene captures the poignant ironies of urban development in Tianjin, a city in constant flux.
