    This is a very big, heavy book filled with amazing photos that were taken in China over a period of 20 years The composition is breathtaking in many of them You get a taste of the diversity of beautiful lands, people, and traditions in China I was lucky enough to see some big prints of these photos displayed in public, along a sidewalk, along with commentary about where they were shot and what was going on I probably spent half an hour looking at them The pictures are arresting.

    This book would have been aptly call A Day in China.Many of the photos in this book look quite random to me.There are too many portaits of gawky chinamen smoking cigarettes.This does however capture many of the goings on in the typical day of modern China with portraits of monks,fisherman,factory workers,etc.There isn t many awe inspiring landscapes and cityscapes in this book although there are some Over all I think this books documentary qualities outway its aesthetic qualities.

    This is physically a huge book, very big and very heavy It is a collection of spectacular photographs of China, plus some very interesting and informative writings I saw it first in a friend s house, and thought it must cost a fortune The price quoted in is amazing low.After lugging it around my living room, I only wish there is a DVD version so that I can look at all the photos on my big computer screen and set up a folder of my own favorites.
