Reseña del editor:

James H. Bollen's photographs are inspired by the writing of J.G. Ballard and Shanghai. Through extensive readings of Ballard's highly visual fiction and using his own painterly photographic language, Bollen's portrayal of the city depicts images, themes and ideas found in the author's fiction. The images construct an urban landscape where time ceases to exist and life becomes like a stage set. In Bollen's eyes, violence, flight, car crashes, the incongruities of time and life can seem so immediately cinematic, or like a ghostly glimpse of life experienced by J.G. Ballard while living in Shanghai. Many of these themes and images can be tracked throughout his writings, where a near-hallucinatory state of mind merges memories of a past Shanghai which continues to exist in the city's present. In addition to excerpts from his short stories and novels, the book includes a foreword written by Ballard's eldest daughter Fay, and an introduction by James H. Bollen exploring the relationship between the city and the author's writing. In the words of Ballard himself, 'I've tried to link together obsessions of mine car crashes, time, hallucinatory states of mind which have always drawn me to the surrealists and find their sources in my own past in Shanghai.'
