Despite the rich history of the country over the centuries and the remarkable progress and contributions made to the world, it appeared to me that the majority of people's lifestyle in the Republic of China has not changed much from the Dynastic period. Intemporality seems to be, in some sense, the Chinese people way of life with the incongruity it implies when we look at this leading and growing country from an economic point of view.
With these photographs, I want to show my perception of the everyday life of Chinese people in large cities. The monochrome tone is an assumed choice to focus on the essence of each scenes.
Photographs taken in Sichuan and Anhui provinces.
