The 23rd publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "Weng Fen's "Sitting On The Wall" and "Bird's Eye View" color photo series feature schoolgirls overlooking the urban skylines of three cities in Southern China. Starting in Haikou, Hainan Island, and moving to Guangdong Province's Guangzhou and the Special Economic Zone of Shenzhen, Weng records moments of intense urban sprawl marked by exponential real estate growth. Backs to camera, and literally facing their future, the girls represent a new generation of Southern Chinese sky-scraping dwellers."
