Artist's description:

I worked for a number of Magazines and newspapers over a long period of time and while in China 1986~1994 I travelled extensively throughout the country. On visiting the South west of the Mainland China I met and became great friends with Professors @ The University of Nanning. Giving lectures on Matisse and Picasso in Guilin City and encouraging Phadion Press to Donate Art Books for Uni Library. I visited a small village of Xhing Phing on my second visit to the Mainland. I was completely knocked out by everything that village stood for ... this was old China. The China before Mao. It's "Of this Earth" quality was simply amazing .Diet and lifestyle echoed the longivity of its occupants. There were people in the village aged 108/9. I decided to document it over a period of 7 years. Andrei Tarkosky's Film SOLARIS starts with a man looking closely at the Earth he is about to leave. I felt this place had a quality of Greenness. The respect in which the elderly were treated simply was breathtaking. That's of course because they had their say in structures and decisions. The Photograph BOY WITH A DEAD BIRD is a great image from a period of my life as a Photographer. This new sized edition is available now. alongside my new Book ..... China : Sweet and Sour 1986~1994. you can view this on BLURB BOOKS.COM .... regards Keith
