Summary:
"With tremendous tenacity, the people of China are changing the face of their country - often with their own bare hands. Sometimes, it seems as if not a single plot of ground has been left unturned or unproductive. The changes are so rapid and so prolific that the photographer finds himself constantly a step behind."

    schema:description ""James Delano regards change in China with mixed feelings. The light in china is muted by the ever-present coal smoke, which creates a softness. People's faces are smudged, and have the hungry, ambitious eyes of those who work with their hands. This generation may be rough around the edges, but they are on the way up, sacrificing for their children and grandchildren; they are nation-building. But no matter how much China transforms itself, a certain degree of "Chineseness" will always remain. The question is, how much?""@en ;
    schema:description ""Immersing himself in a country means, for Delano, quietly wandering the backstreets of the cities, towns and villages. It is still possible to slip into a place or situation unnoticed - at least temporarily. He passes by quickly and quietly in order to capture the immediacy that he seeks before he disturbs the scene. If he is too slow, the moment is lost forever." "These pictures are a strong photographic exploration of what lies beneath the surface of the subject; a study of light, form, energy, emotion and how China reacts to the intrusion of a foreign observer. This book presents a critical, at times ironic, but always informed vision of the nation and its people."--Jacket."@en ;
