About the Artist:
Photographer Marco Paoluzzo first became interested in China decades ago, yet the passionate world traveler refused to visit the country for political reasons until 1998. At that time two friends invited him to collaborate on a book about Shanghai. He was quickly fascinated by the land, and it was here that he met Feifei, now his wife. He has returned to China almost every year since then, and each time he has made new discoveries. This book is the fruit of numerous exploratory journeys that he has randomly taken through the countryside. It is the photographer’s personal travel log, documenting China’s leap from the Maoist era into the 21st century and capturing life in China in all its simultaneous complexity and simplicity.
