Photo books are a great addition to any library. As photographers, we are constantly searching for new ideas and are always interested in seeing concepts-done-well. Here’s a suggestion to add to your library …

Justin Guariglia’s book, “Planet Shanghai: Architecture Family Food Fashion and Culture of China’s Great Metropolis,” is a wonderful photo essay on Shanghai, the legendary city of the East.

The 240-page hardcover book is full of images that show a variety of emotion: striking, whimsical, reverent and light-hearted. The work is an intimate portrait of the people and places that make Shanghai an attraction to the masses.

Guariglia is no stranger to the city. Born in Maplewood, New Jersey, he was a student in China during the 1990s. He took an interest to the Daoist and Buddhist philosophies and spent months traveling to temples and holy sites. He spent nearly a decade documenting the Far East.

The book is available at Amazon.
