About the Book
China is a civilisation steeped in tradition yet undergoing a constant change. This photo book documents China now. The people who hold on to tradition, those people who accept the change and those who adapt. Respecting the traditional way of life whilst enjoying the benefits of this mass modernisation. It is this incredible array of culture that makes China such a wonderful place to photograph the people and the land that shaped their culture.
NEIL HERBERT’S EXPLORATIONS OF INDIA, CHINA, AND OTHER FAR-REACHING CORNERS OF ASIA HAVE FOSTERED A PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE THAT IS SIMULTANEOUSLY EXOTIC AND INTIMATE. HIS CURIOUS, COLORFUL, AND ENERGETIC IMAGES DEMONSTRATE AN APPRECIATION AND FASCINATION FOR AN EVERYDAY WAY OF LIFE THAT IS STRANGE, BEAUTIFUL, AND BEYOND THE MUNDANE.
