Beijing: Contemporary and Imperial
(50 items available)
This publication is a photographic documentation of the monumental physical transformation China, particularly Beijing, has undergone in recent years. In this deluxe, large-format edition, celebrated photographer Lois Conner has captured this transformation through breathtaking black-and-white panoramas that reveal an ancient city in thrall to change, where the lingering splendor of a dynastic past is cast into shadow by rising concrete and steel.
