About Greg Girard

is a Canadian photographer who has spent much of his career in Asia, recording the physical and social transformations in some of its largest cities. His first book, City of Darkness: Life in Kowloon Walled City (Watermark, 1993), co-authored with Ian Lambot, documents the final years of the Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong. His second book, Phantom Shanghai (Magenta, 2007), examines the homes, buildings, streets, and neighborhoods unlikely to survive Shanghai’s vision of its own future. More recent titles include Hanoi Calling (Magenta, 2010) and In the Near Distance (Kominek, 2010), a collection of early work made on both sides of the Pacific.
