Megacity Chongqing Now

ChinaFile Presents

Earlier this month, photographer Tim Franco visited Asia Society to show his work from Chongqing, a city of more than 25 million where he has been reporting since 2009. Many of the images Franco showed appear in his latest book, Metamorpolis (Pendant Ce Temps, 2015), a culmination of his years photographing the people, landscape, and explosive construction of Chongqing. Some of Franco’s images were commissioned by ChinaFile and first appeared on the site in “Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Urban Farmers in Chongqing.” David Barreda, ChinaFile’s Visuals Editor, led a Q&A after the presentation.
