Photographer's Note

Zhong Guo (China)
Gate of Supreme Harmony (?), Imperial Palace Museum, Forbidden City, Beijing, China

The search for truth in China (Zhong Guo) can be obscured by illusion. Is that really the Gate of Supreme Harmony behind the scrim? Or is it merely a visual representation of the building printed on the scrim?

Is China preserving the past or rewriting history? In the present, does one see what is really there? Does the future hold the renovations of history, or is China creating it's own, unique form of the future?

In 23 days I took about 2360 photos. I stored the images on a Wolverine 100 gig portable hard disk/card reader device, which worked very well.
