Against the background of unparalleled economic growth, Aurélien Maréchal illustrates the transformation of urban
landscapes in China.
At the end of 2013 he begins a four years long exploration of Chinese megacities facing a significant architectural
development. His focus lies on new residential neighbourhoods under construction whose excessiveness reveals surrealist scenes of contemporary dystopia. Aurélien Maréchal intercepts this stage of mutation with an objective and minimalist photographic approach.
His series "Block" was exhibited at the ORIGINAL IDENTITY GALLERY in Shanghai in 2017.
Aurélien Maréchal is a self-taught photographer born 1980 in Château-Gontier, France.
Since 2012 he is based in Shanghai, China.
