Here a kaleidoscope of perspectives opens up on life in and around nine major metropolises, from Zhenghou and its archaeological discoveries to Macao, the Las Vegas of the East. The photography captures the entire range of China's natural, architectural, and human diversity, while the book's narrative explores the many traditions and aspirations nurtured by the people.
