In Focus: A picture-driven look at what's new, cool, special and weird about Shanghai. This is the view from the ground, through the lens of our photographers.

Fans of the photographic medium, Photofairs is now open showcasing everything vintage to contemporary works. Running this weekend only (September 21-23), it's the fifth time the exhibition has put up dozens of off-white walls with tastefully arranged prints, large and small, inside the Shanghai Exhibition Centre. In addition to the requisite showing from Magnum Photos, they're featuring selections from 55 dealers, mostly from Asia Pacific, including Shanghai's Arario Gallery, AIKE, ShanghART Gallery, and Matthew Liu Fine Arts. They've also got art, video and tech installations from 150 Chinese and international artists. It's a feast for the senses. Mostly the eyes. Also, a vintage Porsche (they're presenting partners)!

We went down on media day to get a sneak peek.
