Ferit Kuyas was born in Istanbul, studied architecture and law in Switzerland, and has spent a lot of time in China. His most recent work, City of Ambition, showcases the city of Chonqing.
"What is taking place there resembles the ongoings of Manhattan in the Twenties--when Manhattan was built. So I think Stieglitz' quote "City of Ambition" describes the situation in Chongqqing quite well." Many of Ferti's images juxtapose the old and the new, the massive and the minute, the change and the challenge.
