"a vacant lot in the metropolis of Shanghai. A patch of urban wasteland, where thousands of Chinese tourist get in and out tour buses day after day. As they swarm out to the city, the Portuguese artist Tatiana Macedo walks between the empty buses with her camera. From below she photographs the windows; like the urban surroundings, the bus´s interior takes on a new life via her eye.

Reflected in the windows of the bus in time, the turning point between past and present, as the ancient city melts into a cliché of modernity with its skyline of the world´s tallest buildings. Chairs and city, East and West, inside and outside, passenger and observer: all of those levels in Macedo´s photographs give them the look of a theater that has been brought to a standstill
