Cinematographer Christopher Doyle and painter Zhang Enli get together to showcase their artworks, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.

As a cinematographer, Christopher Doyle has shot many films in Shanghai, and now he pays his compliments to the city through a joint exhibition with contemporary Chinese artist Zhang Enli.

The show, Nobody Knows Where, was unveiled at Aurora Museum on June 9, and features video works by Doyle and a few paintings and installations by Shanghai resident Zhang.

One of Doyle's video pieces on exhibition is played in the evenings on a large outdoor screen at Aurora in the city's Pudong area, drawing many passersby to stand and watch.

In this video, British actress Tilda Swinton is seen strolling through downtown Shanghai, and her movements are captured in light and shadow by Doyle.

"I knew Du Kefeng (Doyle's Chinese name) in Taiwan 38 years ago, when he was my English teacher," says Chang Lin-sheng, director of Aurora Museum.

The museum is a private establishment spread across five floors in a high-rise building in Shanghai's financial center.
