Dong Bei ii - 东北 ii



Title: Dong Bei ii - 东北 ii
Year: 2021
Technique: Film Photography

“DongBei - 东北北 - The North East” (2021) portrays street scenes taken on pedestrian roads in the Chinese city of Changchun, the capital of Jilin Province, once known for being the cultural and political centre of the last Chinese dynasty, the Qing or Manchu. Although a historical wealth scarred by the violence and bloodshed during the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in the 1930s and the current neck-breaking ‘economic growth, the DongBei people’s character and attitude seem to have frost in time.
