One Billion Journeys

About

"A train is a big temporary family or a small floating society, which condenses the diversity of life."

New for May 2019, One Billion Journeys features 45 absorbing images from acclaimed photographer Wang Fuchun, some of which have never been exhibited before.

Having spent over 40 years capturing an estimated 200,000 candid snapshots of life on China's railway, Mr Wang's work documents a profound change in China's history. Early images showing crowded passenger trains used by rural workers to commute long distances to big cities are contrasted against later shots demonstrating the growth and pace of technological and social change as China 'opened up' to the outside world.
