“In China, culture and the arts are very closely linked to people and their lives. The street life in Beijing is a 24-hour live show full of music, dance and sports. Over a period of month residence time (September 2007), I was observing Chinese life, collecting “road images”, documenting quotidian performances. When I was there, I saw a city that’s literally exploding, in early transition from the ancient to the modern, adding skyscrapers and other buildings at a breakneck pace, the skyline of the city revised every few months or so, the city was clearly in the process of preparing for hosting the 2008 Olympics.”
