This publication is part of the Tate Gallery special collection.

A narrative created from found slides of American tourists visiting the recently open-to-tourists China (late 1970s). The photographer is unknown. The images have been scanned, selected and edited. My interest in this particular set of slides is the 'new' importance of the opening up of China in terms of trade, finance and sociological behaviour. This book (and future titles in the series) document part of an important international 'shift'.
From an ongoing series of 'found' books.
