Description

In China, much of life is lived on the street. Merchandise from open fronted shops spills into the street. Open air markets, street - side stalls, portable kitchens wreathed in tantalizing aromas, all serve to turn the street into a place of unceasing encounters and entertainment. Propaganda banners span the streets and firecrackers engulf it in noise and smoke, when there is an occasion to celebrate. Through the images of, "A Street in China", readers may journey down a typical market town street in Sichuan where barbers, letter-writers and herbal healers still ply their trade. All are part of the spectacle of old China that still lingers, but may be difficult to bring into focus in modern day China's fast growing cities. Superb photographs heighten the timeless quality of characters that have existed on China's streets for centuries but - given the rapid pace of change - may not exist a century from now.
