Summary

Since China opened its economy to the world, the country and its people have undergone a century of change in half the actual time. China’s women are no longer just caged birds, nor do they only hold up half the sky. So what have they made of themselves through the Chinese Miracle?. Thierry Coulon, by interviewing and giving his portrait subjects creative control, has given Chinese women a powerful way to express themselves, on their own terms rather than according to the propaganda line, or the orientalist narrative.

    That book is the best gift you can make from China once you are so done with tea leaves and the cute chopsticks. The topic is treated in a creative way, pictures are an honest beauty and it is also a great way to learn what Chinese women really want and think!

    It is a very sensitive work that the photographer present here. It’s a creative vision not only on chinese women, but also on the diversity of China. The way the artist look at all those women is like the way a writer would tell us a story that a part would still need to be imagined for our best pleasure. This book is sensually poetic.
