Text from the first page:
"Now let us, by flight of imagination, suppose that Rome is not a human habitation but a psychical entity with a similar long and copious past -- an entity, that is to say, in which nothing that has once come into existence will have passed away and all the earlier phases of development continue to exist alongside the latest one.
-- Sigmund Freud "
Pieter Hugo, reknowned for his work about countries and communities in Africa, offers us a beautiful series of portraits and his vision of modern Beijing today.
