“Shanghai Blue” is a chapter in Angie Jennings’ series “Modern Streets of an Ancient Empire”. This project studies the dichotomy of China and its ever-increasing modernity and how it is burying the great history of this most ancient country.  Under the canopy of modern blue neon lights that light up Shanghai’s main thoroughfares lays the hint of the ancient empire as it becomes buried under the modern world.  Angie Jennings found all this blue neon rather unusual and believes it’s a way to calm the people of the city out in the hot night, but she cannot be sure. It does create a fantastical view of this city of millions.
