The Great Wall Revisited - From the Jade Gate to Old Dragon's Head

ISBN:7-5085-1032-1, 7508510321, 9787508510323

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

William Lindesay spent three years travelling 35,000 km across North China, carrying his tripod, cameras and a file of vintage photographs, the earliest dating from 1871, looking not merely for vantage points, but ‘advantage points’, places from which he could see the Great Wall in the 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 impressions left by ‘milestone’ visitors, juxtaposed beside contemporary eyewitnesses accounts that explain the changes. This dossier unfolds as an extraordinary journey along the Wall from the Jade Gate in northwest China’s gobi to Old Dragon’s Head on the Yellow Sea coast.

A state of the Great Wall report per se, evidencing the vestiges of time which have impacted upon it, this book trigger a lively forum, while asking poignant questions as to how the Wall should best be preserved for present and future generations.
