Like birds on a wire, these workmen perform at vertigo-inducing heights on the megalopolis' many skyscrapers under construction; a mixture of acrobats and skilled tightrope walkers.

As a specialist for special risk insurances in Event & Film, Gaetan (°81) discovered photography during a prolonged stay in Shanghai in 2008. He became fascinated by the breathtaking urban landscapes of the megalopolis, the local practices and the contrasting energy of a country in full booming expansion. Back in Europe since 2010, his interest in the details and practices of photography has kept growing exponentially.
