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 nearly 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 outsiders until a few
decades ago. Insightful and vivid texts written by travel journalist Bertram Job
enhance this comprehensive portrayal of traditional China, a world rapidly being engulfed by encroaching modernity.
* Over 300 high quality photographs.
* Vivid text accompanies the photos to make this volume complete.
Alessandra Meniconzi has cycled thousands of miles through China
with her camera. Her preferred motifs deal with untouched nature
and traditional ways of life. Born in Switzerland, Meniconzi works
internationally; in addition to illustrated books on Asia and Iceland,
she is currently working on a book about the Antarctic.
