The January issue of That’s Shanghai, aka the ‘photo issue,’ has always been my favorite one. Seeing an increase in popularity for aerial photography around China over the past year, for this month’s cover story, I’ve gathered up some of the country’s most creative photographers who are using drones to document the multifaceted landscape and cityscape of the Middle Kingdom.

Starting p38, you’ll find some visually stunning photographs courtesy of Henan-born photographer @cocoanext, @nk7 from Guangdong, as well as participants from the 2017 SkyPixel Photo Contest. Also featured are the works of Tugo Cheng, a Hong Kong-based photographer who has won multiple awards from Sony World Photography Awards, National Geographic, and other prestigious photography competitions. His captivating shot of Sichuan’s Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture titled ‘Men Are from Mars’ appears on this month’s cover.

Continuing with the photo theme, That’s Beijing Editor-in-Chief Noelle Mateer speaks to Koryo Tours’ Nicholas Bonner about his new book Made in North Korea: Graphics from Everyday Life in the DPRK in our City feature (p10), in which you’ll find a collection of comic strips, sugar packets, stamps and other interesting artifacts straight out of the Hermit Kingdom.

Elsewhere in the mag, Food & Drink Editor Betty Richardson dives deep into the backstreets of Gubei for a roundup of her favorite Japanese eateries (starting p52), and of course, that’s served alongside a delicious platter of the latest openings in Shanghai (starting p57). Last but not least, Arts Editor Erica Martin reviews Brooklyn-based artist Swoon’s exhibition at the Magda Danysz Gallery (p36). 

Until next month,

Dominic Ngai
Editor-in-Chief
