China: An Intimate Look At The Past And Present: A Photographic Journe
Villages have become cities; dirt tracks, superhighways; and everywhere the buzz of industry and commerce fills the air. Bearing witness to the change have been the people, whose faces wear a deep feeling of pride, determination, and perseverancethe same spirit that turned the Long March from a disaster into a triumph.
For two years from 19341936, the Red Army, under the leadership of Mao Zedong, retreated across the wilds of China, battling nationalist forces and struggling to stay alive under impossibly harsh conditions. They trekked across mountains, snowfields, bogs, and desertsplaces that today have been completely transformed. With photographs by a group of celebrated photographers, along with maps, timelines, and historical images and artwork, "China" provides an insightful and wholly original retelling of one of the most significant events in Chinese history."
