Shanghai's Xiang Yang Marketplace
These vendors occupy one corner of a huge outdoor market also known as the "knock-off" market. When I took this photo in June 2006, the government was weeks away from permanently shutting down Xiang Yang market, since fashion houses like Cartier and Gucci have begun to embrace China's new economy and they are rapidly making both their physical presence and legal trademark protections known.
