In China, much of life is lived on the street. The merchandise from open fronted shops spills onto the street into a place of unceasing encounters and entertainment. Propaganda banners span the street in Sichuan where barbers, letter-writers and herbal healers still ply their trade.

All are part of the spectacle of Old China that still lingers, but may be difficult to bring into focus in modern day China's fast-growing cities. Superb photographs heighten the timeless quality of characters that have existed on China's streets for centuries but - given the rapid pace of change - may not exist a century from now.
