This book contains photos shooting by Japanese photographer Saito Koichi in 1969, when he was in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Wuhan, Changsha, Shaoshan in Hunan province and places in Guangdong. During his staying in China, he took lots of photos about city streets and citizen activities. Not only are these photos reflect the mental outlooks of Chinese people’s lifestyle, but also spread out an entire architecture landscape in cities. These photos are of highly documentary values. Meanwhile, it shows profound plot. During the selecting and assembling, instead of redundant subjective annotation, we don’t add them and make comments on the photos any more, just let the photos tell. Let the architectures, people and characters, ordinary life and some politic symbols filled with streets emerged to a song of a times, a song that has been faded away but affected every Chinese people.
