Details
In the past 40 years, China's economy has developed by leaps and bounds. Railways are like the arteries of the land but also mirror China's economic prosperity. As a railway worker and a photographer Wang Fuchun has always focused his camera on passengers on trains. With near-instinctive observation and empathy, he has recorded their real emotions, sadness, happiness, joys and sorrows, in narrow, long trains. By doing so, he has extended the trains, originally a means of transportation, into a stage of life, a space of historical changes, a platform for socialization, a joyful theater and a moving caravan. This engrossing album condenses people’s lives into fast-moving trains. The photographer Wang Fuchun uses his unique humorous vision and sharp perspective to reflect social progress and human nature in his black and white photos, allowing his audience to join him in this delightful journey. Time flies. When we look back on the past and recall our experiences on the trains in those days while sitting in a clean and comfortable train today, we may have forgotten the pain and those jostling crowds. What remains are warm memories and friends we have made on our many trips.
