Hutong is a precious testimony of a lost past and brings to light melancholy memories of time passing. Once graceful and refined lanes, the hutongs are rapidly vanishing due to the destructive process of Beijing’s urban development.

The ephemeral charm of the old lanes covered by snow, washed by rain and delicately shining under the sun capture fragments of a disappearing symbol of ancient Chinese culture and reality. The silent black and white images reflect the loneliness of the hutongs’ inhabitants as well as of the artist himself, who, in front of their destruction, could only reveal the poetry of the alleyways and their fleeting beauty.
