As a revelation of what it is like to be inside China and, equally, as a photographic work of art, Eve Arnold's "In China" is a triumph. It is the fruit of two extended trips to China in 1979, totaling five months in which she was able to travel freely, following her own itinerary some 40,000 miles back and forth across the mainland, with almost a hundred percent access to everything she chose to photograph, accompanied only by her interpreter.
An incomparably complete and beautiful photographic portrait of China - the people, the work, the lives from Peking to Mongolia, and the Burmese border to Tibet, the book contains one hundred and seventy magnificent photographs, all in full color. "In China" is an amazing collection that will radically revise all our preconceptions about the world's most populated country - what it looks like, who lives there, what it means to be in China.
