The first of a series of images exploring aspects of street life in and around the central commercial and entertainment district of the city of Chongqing in South West China. This city is the fastest growing city in the world and embraces a mixed economy and cultural life which spans decades of difference in terms of style and engagement with the modern world. Many things and people seem curiously out of place one minute and perfectly natural against another backdrop fifty feet away. Illusion - not the smoke and mirrors of political obfuscation (alone) but also the philosophical sense of illusion named Maya from the Upanishads and other Indian texts. A materialistic dream developing day by day........drawing people in at an ever faster rate.......but it won't be for everyone...........
