Book: Hidden China – Alessandra Meniconzi

This illustrated book takes the reader to the most isolated areas of China and shows a world far away from the big metropolises, an almost forgotten world where people still live their traditional lives nearly untouched. With her sensitive manner, Alessandra Meniconzi succeeds to enter areas of life that until a few decades ago often remained closed to travelers and other photographers. Thus she is a guest in the tents of nomads, learns about the hard daily life of rice farmers and experiences spiritual ceremonies in Buddhist monasteries. Knowledgeable and lively texts by travel journalist Bertram Job complete the broad picture of traditional China, which will probably no more exist in this way in a few years.
