Photographer's Note

Beijing Hutong(alleyway) is the reflection of original architecture
and culture of Beijing.
it had been building since the Yuan dynasty
and developed during the Qing dynasty.
But when i first came to visit Hutong,
i got a big suprise that most of the Hutongs
look like a street bustling with activity and many shops.

then, if you had taken the tricycle to look around,
the driver would has told you
in the past the Hutong were so quite,
the residents were so nice, the...not like now.
from his deep regrets expression for this
you would soon have found
the history and lifestlye of the old Beijing
have been getting farther and farther from us.
