20 Photographs from the series ‘Cities Unknown’ by HG Esch at the Cologne Rhine promenade. 

On the 25th year anniversary of the Beijing–Cologne city partnership and after 40 years of diplomatic relations between China and Germany, HG Esch presented photographs of his series ‘Cities Unknown’ in a large-formated Outdoor-Presentation following the Photokina trade fair. 

The 20 large-scale photos were installed all along the promenade. With his project ‘CITIES UNKNOWN – Megacities of China’ HG Esch gives a face to the almost unknown cities of China and documents urbanity as one of the molding developments of our century.
