Review "Delano's photographs are honest, unadorned and intimate." —Life  
Book Description 
This collection of duotone photographs of contemporary China evokes the timeless spirit of this ancient and rapidly changing culture. The innate and mysterious details that make China unique are captured in fleeting facial expressions and gestures and in fragments of architecture and landscapes. The moving, highly personal view of China that emerges in these images typifies the strength of the human spirit and its ability to overcome adversity.
