What happens when a crane operator is also into photography?

What do you get when you give a crane operator a camera? Amazing, award-winning photographs of Shanghai’s rising skyline, that’s what. Wei Gensheng is a crane operator working on the tallest building in China and second tallest in the world, the Shanghai Tower. At 121 storeys tall, it’s fairly easy to say that Gensheng has a pretty cool and unique view of the city below. With the photos he’s taken, we get an idea of the city’s changing skyline and beautiful mix of architectural styles.

Shanghai is home to 23 million people (that’s almost 4x the population of New York and 6x of Sydney!) and is currently experiencing a boom in vertical construction to make room for the exponentially growing population. So the good news is, Gensheng won’t stop taking crane photographs anytime soon. Also, his photos haven’t gone unnoticed as he just won second prize in the Shanghai City Photography Competition.
