See China in a whole new light. For several years, Luxembourgish photographer and travel journalist Annette Morheng has documented everyday life in the Middle Kingdom, a country where tradition and progress constantly collide. Gathered together in this vibrant new illustrated book, her pictures document Chinese people, villages, and hutongs; temples and skyscrapers; natural wonders and mega metropolises; the most remote provinces and diverse ethnic groups. With an eye for authentic details and interactions, Morheng captures the rapid change, local customs, and internationality that make up China today. With immersive first-hand reports accompanying the images, this reportage looks beyond the traditional tourist gaze and leading media narratives to explore a China rich with nature, culture and people!
