REVISITING LOESS PLATEAU
In 1908, the American adventurer Robert Sterling Clark organized an international scientific expedition to the hinterland of the Loess Plateau in northern China. One century after the expedition, Li Ju, a Chinese freelance photographer, followed in the footsteps of the Clark expedition and re-explored the route, covering thousands of kilometers. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the publication of Through Shên-Kan, China Intercontinental Press has assembled a selection of the original photos taken by the Clark expedition and recent images taken by Li Ju and his colleagues. This book gives both Chinese and foreign readers an intuitive and vivid understanding of the historical appearance of northwestern China and the dramatic changes that have occurred in the past century — a comparative visual essay on the passage of time.
