    Photographer and anthropologist Liz Hingley uncovers the spiritual landscape of China’s largest city, which sits at the forefront of the country’s unprecedented religious revival.

    Evocative photographs reveal the spaces and rituals embedded in the fabric of today’s cosmopolitan megalopolis of 24 million people. Shanghai is home to a multitude of religious groups from Buddhism and Islam, to Christianity and Baha’ism, to Hinduism and Daoism, and many more, which are growing and changing with the tide of globalisation and the limitless inventiveness of it’s population.

    Showing alongside Shanghai Sacred will be Tabitha Jussa and John Davies’ exhibition: Can’t See The Wood for the Trees

    Today we seemingly find ourselves having to fight in order to protect our ancient and mature trees from the destructive processes of twenty first century living.

    This exhibition is a visual exploration of trees in the urban environment through the prism of contemporary scientific understanding and the symbolic significance of trees to people through history to raise issues that are important to our futures.
