Waterfront Cities of the World
Season 3: Ep: 1 "Stockholm"
In the third season of this 13-part series, renowned Canadian photographer Heidi Hollinger takes us into the heart of some of the world's great port cities, from the legendary avenues of New York, which continues to redefine itself, to the glittering towers of Doha - a former pearl fishing village transformed into a global powerhouse - and the pulsing streets of Ho Chi Minh City, where the heat and humidity shapes everyday life. Heidi goes beyond the tour brochures for a look at what these cities are really like - how the past has shaped their spirit, and how each has found its own way to meet the challenges of the future.

Stockholm
Stockholm, the green city, is a true leader in the fight against growing environmental problems on the planet. (1 of 13)
Honolulu
Sitting on a volcanic zone and isolated in the middle of the Pacific, the city behind Pearl Harbour is located 6,000 km from California and 8,000 km from Japan. (2 of 13)
Doha
Now the richest city in the world, Doha was a small pearl fishing village just a few decades ago. (3 of 13)
Naples
Caught between volcanoes and the Mediterranean Sea, Naples is clearly a city of contrasts. (4 of 13)
Miami
City of pleasures and a renowned beach hangout, Miami is a culturally rich city influenced by its large Hispanic population. (5 of 13)
Lima
The capital and largest city of Peru, Lima is home to a population of 9 million people, one third of the country's population. (6 of 13)
Ho Chi Minh City
The largest city in Vietnam is still called Saigon by its residents. Its hot and humid climate pushes them to invade the streets, restaurants and public places late in the evening to enjoy the rare but pleasant cool air. (7 of 13)
Hamburg
The largest port in Germany, Hamburg is host to a hundred consulates, and cherishes its international character. (8 of 13)
New Orleans
New Orleans has a rich cultural heritage, with its French and Caribbean roots. Although the Big Easy was hit by hurricanes and floods, it is once again blooming, relying on its soul and its legendary strength of character. (9 of 13)
Riga
Nestled in an exceptional natural bay, Riga was a gateway to the continent for nearly 3,000 years. Today, the city of a million inhabitants remains the cradle of Latvian identity. (10 of 13)
London
The multiple villages that make up London teem with activity and are constantly being renewed. We may think we know London, but the city that was once the world's largest port deserves a new analysis. (11 of 13)
Barcelona
The flagship city of Spain, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a region that has its own unique identity. (12 of 13)
New York City
New York is constantly changing. Harlem and 125th Street have been redefined, Brooklyn has become a destination in its own right, and High Line Park, now stretching above 16 blocks of the West Village, continues to grow. (13 of 13)
