I Love Tian'anmen in Peking, Now and Then

I Love Tian'anmen in Peking, Now and Then
Jul 15, 2009 Translated by eChinacities.com

To most Chinese, Tian’anmen Square has special significance. A Chinese photographer Hei Ming has a great idea to show us the profound changes Tian’anmen Square has gone through. He collected old photos taken at Tian’anmen Square in the middle of twentieth century and invited people in the photos to re-take photos many years later with the same poses at the same location.
