As he traveled through Canton, Fujian, Shanghai, and Beijing, he documented the countryside, numerous cities along China's coast, and his impressions of regions that were experiencing dramatic socioeconomic change. 'The City of Flowers' shares the diary excerpts and photographs that Bozóky created during his time in Canton and Guangdong province to offer a glimpse of life during one of China's most transformative periods. -- publisher's statement.
