Publisher's note | "In the spring of 2006, almost thirty years after he first set foot on Chinese soil, Hong Kong born photographer Basil Pao finally fulfilled his lifelong dream of visiting and photographing every province and autonomous regions of China. The result is this remarkable volume which offers the most complete and up-to-date picture of a country undergoing momentous changes. But it also reveals a more personal side, the not always comfortable relationship between the author and the country of his blood. China Revealed is a profoundly important and visually stunning record of one of the most powerful nations on earth." The book features over 500 photographs, along with extended captions and eight essays by Basil.
