A trove of black-and-white photographs shows China on the cusp of change: Ham Tin resident Patrick Dransfield’s newly published Track of Time: Moments of Transition comprises over 60 original images taken on the streets of Beijing and Datong during the summer of 1986.
“In 1986, China was at a liminal moment,” Patrick says. “For those endless seeming four months I took image after image, roll after roll of 120 film with my trusty Seagull camera (and no light metre), thus creating an archive of images of a time now long gone.”
You can grab your copy of Track of Time: Moments of Transition for HK$399 at bookstores throughout Hong Kong – including VIBE Book and Music Shop in Mui Wo.
Patrick is donating HK$20 for each book sold to children’s cancer research.Tags: china, lantau resident, photobook, photos
