Chinese photographer Liu Zheng began traveling throughout China in 1994, eager to present a comprehensive view of Chinese society at a moment of great social and cultural change. The resulting series “The Chinese,” culled from some 10,000 photographs, presents a people negotiating traditional culture amidst rapid modernization, from the wealthiest members of society to those living on the fringe. In this striking image from 1995, convicts queued up to get their rations of water react to the camera’s flash, their shadowy existence fleetingly illuminated.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
