Overview

Over the past 26 years, Japanese photographer and educator Yasuto Kitahara has made almost innumerable trips to China to study various aspects of Chinese art and culture.During these travels, he has taken over 10,000 photographs from all 28 provinces of China, likely the most complete documentation of old China held in a single collection. China Remembered presents Kitahara's photographs and memories of a changing China, a beautiful and moving testament to a culture and history that remains enigmatic to Western audiences.

Divided into 6 main chapters: "People," "Architecture," "Culture," "Nature," "Society," and "Life," China Remembered captures the character, texture, and charm of Chinese life. Moreover, many of the scenes captured in this book have already been destroyed as China has been rapidly developed in recent years. In fact, as China continues to develop, this book will be a rare gem that captures all the lost moments of old China — its people, its culture, its landscape and its cityscape.

China Remembered presents to the world a China that many will never get to see, in a manner compelling and necessary for all seeking a deeper and more intimate understanding of this great nation.


About the Author:
Born in 1925 in Nagano, Japan and now residing in Singapore, Yasuto Kitahara's passion for China began in the 1970s when he decided to trace the roots of Japanese culture, art, and architecture. Over the following decades, he has made constant trips to China's various provinces, amassing over 10,000 slides of the country and its people — his most prized possession — which he shares with the world inChina Remembered.
