This book is created by the famous Chinese photographer Chen Jin based on his 30 years of shooting on the vulgar life in hometown. It tells his childhood under the time background and the local customs of his hometown. In a humorous and plain narration way and by taking his memories as the clue, the author makes the past stand vividly on the paper with black-and-white photos with a strong sense of presence. The book represents the authentic folk life of Chinese people in the late 20th century and it is very precious.
《市井中国:20世纪末街巷里的流年影像》由中国著名摄影家陈锦扎根故乡,拍摄市井生活30年创作而成。记述了在大时代环境中个人的童年往事以及故乡的风俗家事。用影像和文字记录下曾经生活的地方已经消失、即将消失和仍然存在的中国老百姓们的日常生活片断,在作者的镜头中、文字间,百姓的日常生活方方面面丰富有趣,热情的街坊、家中的琐事、热闹的集市、攒动的茶铺,旧书店、字画摊、蜂窝煤、各家门前的腊肉腊肠,这些不仅是作者笔下的往日时光,也是中国人童年的集体记忆。作者用风趣、朴实的讲述方式,以自己的回忆为线索,加上极具现场感的黑白照片,让那段逝去的时光跃然纸上。本书为每一个中国人还原了20世纪末期原汁原味的市井中国百姓生活,极为珍贵。治愈每一刻寻找乡愁的心灵。摄影家肖全说:我只看了几张照片就来电了!
