This project grew out of a curiosity to find out what Chinese people think about their country and their future. In 2010, I traveled throughout major urban centers in eastern China stopping people on the street to ask the same two questions about their country and their future. The respondents filled out a one-page typewritten questionnaire that included these two questions and some basic information including name, age, and occupation. The questions were interpreted variously, and the responses range from prosaic to poetic, from rote to inspired, and from unemotional to patriotic. While it’s difficult to draw conclusions about the entire population, the people photographed here expressed a sincere love of country and optimism about the country’s future development and peaceful position in the world.
Photography takes time and money. Working independently on most of my projects allows for freedom in time and subject matter that assignment work does not, but such independent work is expensive. If you would like to support this project or future projects, there are a number of ways to help.
All photos in the project are available for purchase as prints in a variety of sizes and prices. Additionally, other photos from previous projects are available. The prints immediately available are unsigned and printed by AdoramaPix. They look great and I’ve used the prints in portfolios and exhibitions. If you would like a higher quality paper, a signed print, or part of a limited edition, please contact me: email@example.com Current sizes available: 5×7, 8×10, 11×17, 16×20, 20×30, 24×36.
