From the Jade Gate to Old Dragon's Head

Paperback; 29*21 cm; 291 pages

Using the technique of rephotography – repeat photography at the sameplace with a time lag in between – this landmark volume, the firstmainstream publication on the theme of Great Wall conservation,presents a realistic portrait of the world’s most-famous building.

WilliamLindesay spent three years travelling 35,000 km across North China,carrying his tripod, cameras and a file of vintage photographs, theearliest dating from 1871, looking not merely for vantage points, but‘advantage points’, places from which he could see the Great Wall inthe past and present, side by side.

“The Great Wall Revisited”presents 72 of the most elucidating ‘then’ and ‘now’ comparisons,succinct histories of the sites, and colourful literary impressionsleft by ‘milestone’ visitors, juxtaposed beside contemporaryeyewitnesses accounts that explain the changes. This dossier unfolds asan extraordinary journey along the Wall from the Jade Gate in northwestChina’s gobi to Old Dragon’s Head on the Yellow Sea coast.

Astate of the Great Wall report per se, evidencing the vestiges of timewhich have impacted upon it, this book trigger a lively forum, whileasking poignant questions as to how the Wall should best be preservedfor present and future generations.
