What if you were a passer-by in the Beijing streets, a peasant hoping for the rain to fall, a steelworker in disappearing factories, a tourist on a packed beach, praying in Ningxia or Qinghai, a construction worker after an earthquake, a fisherman repairing his fishnet, or a dancer waiting to go on stage? A personal contemporary portrait of a country, a population and a society.
