You just need an analog camera, an expired black and white film, and go into the alleys of a Chinese city, to have the feeling you had a jump, back several years.
The soft tones of the film, the absence of the typical colors of China, transform the present in the ancient past.
The photos were shot with a Lomo Lubitel 166 + and a 120mm Kodak PPN 160 ISO film.

CHINA-UNDERGROUND. Ciao! My name is Dominique. I’m Italian and I’m proud to be a mix. My father was an Italian chemical engineer and high school teacher, with Greek and Polish heritage. My mother is Haitian, she was high school language teacher, with Dominican, Spanish, French, Portuguese, African and Native American heritage. Being a mix makes me appreciate to want to understand different cultures and lifestyles. I grew up in Italy, lived few years in Haiti, travel around main European capitals, lived seven years in China, six in Spain and UK. Traveling makes me feel that we can learn something from every situation in every part of the world.
