"In my coverage of China over the years, I saw this transformation of China from a very backward, self-isolated country to the China that we know today," said Liu, 62, at his elegant courtyard house in central Beijing. "The exhibition is a journey of China moving from collectivism to individualism."

In the process of the transformation, Liu believes, a majority of the Chinese population has realised the materialist part of their Chinese dream.

The Shanghai exhibition, which includes 115 images in all, falls into two parts: black-and-white images taken in the 1980s and coloured photos from the 1990s until the present.
