HKFP Lens: Invisible Theatre – Shanghai street dramas captured by photographer Tim Gao

By Tim Gao

Tim Gao is a freelance photographer based in Shanghai, China.

He shared his “Invisible Theatre” shots with HKFP.
“Street photography is not just a sharp triggering of shutter to shape the outside world in the form of light and shadow,” Gao told HKFP, “it is simultaneously a curious observation and emotional perception of what’s happening in the ordinary streets at any moment, when unpredictable dramas and realities are actually taking place.”

“I have lived in Shanghai for over 9 years and I explore Shanghai, where urban city and residential lanes are hidden and unknown to me and impact my emotional attachment to the city,” he said.
