Overview

It was a major feat when, in December 1956, Marc Riboud became one of the first Western photographers to enter China after the Communist takeover of 1949. A member of the famed Magnum photo agency, Riboud was permitted to return to China at regular intervals over the next four decades, observing and recording the enormous changes that have taken place. French journalist Jean Daniel provides a thoughtful introduction and Riboud himself comments on each photograph, explaining the time, the place, and the circumstance. This is a book that will intrigue and disturb - through its insights into the soul of the Chinese people, and through its picture of a nation transforming itself with such wrenching speed.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Renowned French photographer Riboud (Angkor: The Serenity of Buddhism, LJ 10/01/93) has been regularly recording the profound changes in China since 1956. In this companion catalog for an exhibition on display in Paris and New York, Riboud notes that "the East that we loved for its permanences is suddenly turning into a caricature of the West." Indeed, this collection portrays not only the striking contrasts between the old and new China but observes remnants of the old society adrift in the new. Generally showing either cityscapes or villagers engaged in daily activities, the 150 black-and-white images move from the tradition-bound Old World culture to scenes contrasting that world with Mao's China to the emergence of a modern, consumer-driven society carrying vestiges of the past. Along with the stirring photographs, Riboud's witty, personal captions and a reflective preface by French journalist Jean David capture the spirit of a resilient people and the soul of a rapidly changing nation. Highly recommended.Joan Levin, MLS, Chicago
