This illustrated book explores some of the most remote regions of China and brings to life a world far removed from the great metropolises, a world that has almost been forgotten, where the people continue to live their traditional lifestyles largely undisturbed. Alessandra Meniconzi"s respectful approach has allowed her to gain access to aspects of life that remained largely closed to travellers and other photographers until a few decades ago. She has been invited to join nomads in their tents, experienced the difficult daily life of rice farmers, and witnessed spiritual ceremonies in Buddhist monasteries. Insightful and vivid texts written by travel journalist Bertram Job round off this comprehensive portrayal of traditional China, a world that may not exist in another generation or two.
