A beautifully designed book of photographs of China taken at a time of great change. Often change happens imperceptibly and it is only when one compares these images with work undertaken in the 1960s and '70s (c.f. Kimura Ihei's 'Chugoku no tabi'), that one realizes how far China had moved in the intervening years. Covering Canton, Shanghai, Xian, Lanzhou, Urumchi and Peking, Hamaya captures the virtually timeless hardships and energy of life in these cities. He got to Peking in time for the National Day celebrations and the last image shows a shadowy Mao shaking hands with Zhou Enlai. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
