(Update: We’re live via new host, no more VPN required for China readers! You will notice a few kinks, missing posts and blogroll. They will be updated shortly. Bear with me!)
Contrary to the radio silence that some may have noticed, many exciting things are afoot here. I will be updating this post for the rest of the week and we will resume business as usual next Monday.
First of all, I have an upcoming photo exhibit that is launching this Sat, 11 September. This is all most exciting and I cannot begin to thank the folks at Southern Barbarian who have been so kind to host my work.
You are all invited to the launch party, details are below:
Second, as part of the obligatory publicity drive to promote the exhibit, I’ve been interviewed by the local magazines including That’s Shanghai, City Weekend, NeochaEDGE (more to come).
Third, I have an online photo essay coming out in the next day. (details to come) my photo essay on the first bat mitzvah in the Ohel Moshe Synagogue in Shanghai, which now serves as the Jewish Refugee Museum, is now in The Atlantic, “Being Jewish in Shanghai” which is wonderfull written by Adam Minter. Many thanks to the Rosens who allowed me to participate in such a significant occasion.
Finally, this site
will soon be migrating has migrated to a webhost with the specific purpose of overcoming the firewall here in China. I currently previously used wordpress.com which is blocked for most readers in China, and so action had been taken. Or to be more accurate, a very generous and kind friend helped me do this, we will celebrate her fabulousness in due course many, many thanks to the wonderful Katya.
Of course, I have you to thank, dear reader, for taking the time to stop by. Welcome to all new readers as well. I hope you enjoy the many stories that the city has to offer.
I’m glad you moved to another host, it was a bit daunting to get through the firewall each time. And congratulations on everything mentioned above!
Yes! Time to scale that wall the other way in. Sorry to cause you so much grief earlier! Thanks for stopping by!
Great! I can visit the site in Shanghai finally~
Nice you moved, then I don’t have to hook up with the VPN. And thanks the show, your photos are also impressing on print.
