LITTLE NORTH ROAD: AFRICA IN CHINA -- DANIEL TRAUB, WU YONG FU, ZENG XIAN FANG. Roberto Castillo et al. Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg, 2015. 174 pp. with 117 col. ills. 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783868286298 In English.
Publisher's description: Little North Road is a photographic collaboration that looks at a pedestrian bridge in the middle of Guangzhou. The bridge serves as a symbolic gateway into China from Africa. At the heart of this book is a selection of images collected from two Chinese itinerant portrait photographers, Wu Yong Fu and Zeng Xian Fang. Equipped with digital cameras, they have made a living making portraits for Africans who wanted a memento of their time in China. Daniel Traub's photographs explore the broader dynamics of the area and provide a context through which to look at the work of Wu and Zeng. As China's power and reach have grown, it has become a new center of gravity pulling people from remote lands. Guangzhou has become a magnet for Africans and other groups who have come in search of opportunity and to trade in the goods produced in the Pearl River Delta. Recent developments, however, call into question whether this cosmopolitanism is an inevitable part of China's future or a moment that has already passed.
