Exploring the Cultural Legacy of the Bai People: Heqing

Last Updated on 2023/05/19

A Glimpse into the Bai People and their Heritage

Located not too far from the ancient capital of Dali, lies the county of Heqing, a stunning example of the unique architecture of the Bai people. This ethnic group is one of the 56 officially recognized by the Chinese government and their name, Bai, literally means “white people” in Chinese, reflecting their reverence for the color white.

The Bai people are proud of their heritage, and fiercely protect their language, customs, and traditions. They are known for their beautiful architecture, which has been well-preserved in Heqing. The county is located in the Dali prefecture and is a true gem for those interested in learning more about the Bai people and their history.

It is worth noting that Dali was the ancient capital of two great kingdoms, the Bai kingdom of Nanzhao, which flourished during the 8th and 9th centuries, and the Kingdom of Dali, which reigned from 937-1253. Today, Dali is still rich in history and culture, making it a popular destination for tourists and a fascinating place to visit for those interested in learning more about China’s past.

The pictures of Heqing and its stunning Bai architecture were captured by the lens of photographer Matteo Damiani. These photographs offer a glimpse into a world that is both beautiful and rich in history, and provide a visual representation of the cultural heritage of the Bai people.

Witnessing the Time-Honored Dragon Dance of Yunnan

In the Yunnan province of China, specifically in HeqingDali Prefecture, the elderly people of the Bai community perform a time-honored tradition known as the Dragon Dance. This captivating performance involves a large dragon made of colorful fabric and paper, held up on poles by dancers who move in a coordinated rhythm to make the dragon come alive.

The Dragon Dance is a significant part of the Chinese New Year celebration, which is the most important festival in China. The locals believe that the dance will bring good luck and prosperity for the upcoming year. The dancers, who are highly respected and regarded as skilled performers, are often invited by families and businesses to perform the Dragon Dance for them as a way to bring fortune and ward off evil spirits.

The Bai community has been preserving and passing down the tradition of the Dragon Dance for generations, and it remains an important aspect of their cultural heritage. The dance requires a lot of practice and teamwork, and it is an excellent way for the elderly to stay active and engaged in their community. Through the Dragon Dance, the Bai people express their reverence for their ancestors and their hopes for a prosperous future.

Turpan: The Death Valley of China

Last Updated on 2022/04/22

Turpan images

Turpan is the hottest place in China and it’s known also as Huo Zhou (a place as hot as fire).

The area around Turpan, the Turpan Depression is the lowest point in China and the second-lowest on Earth (after the Dead Sea) at 154 meters below sea level. In July and August temperatures soar to 40 ° C.

Turpan images

Turpan ( 吐鲁番, Tǔlǔfān ) is located in the east of Xinjiang. Turpan has long been the center of a fertile oasis (with water provided by the karez canal system) and an important trade center. It was historically located along the Silk Road, at which time it was adjacent to the kingdoms of Kroran and Yanqi. The name Turfan itself however was not used until the end of the Middle Ages – its use became widespread only in the post-Mongol period.

Turpan images

Turpan is located about 150 km (93 mi) southeast of Ürümqi, Xinjiang’s capital, in a mountain basin, on the northern side of the Turpan Depression, at an elevation of 30 m (98 ft) above sea level. Outside of Turpan is a small volcanic cone, the Turfan volcano, that is said to have erupted in 1120 as described in the Song Dynasty.

15 beautiful images of Zhangjiajie National Park in Hunan, China

Last Updated on 2024/02/04

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park is one of the most peculiar national forest parks in China.

[湖南张家界国家森林公园; Húnán Zhāngjiājiè Guójiā Sēnlín Gōngyuán]

Situated in the northern region of Hunan Province in the People’s Republic of China, this national park forms a part of the Wulingyuan Scenic Area and is positioned within the boundaries of Zhangjiajie City. It stands as one among the multiple national parks encompassed by the scenic area.

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park

History & Culture

Zhangjiajie, an area steeped in history and legend, traces its origins back to the Neolithic Age when it was known as “Dayong”. This region, once considered remote and inaccessible, has human traces dating back approximately 100,000 years. Ancient local narratives tell of Zhang Liang, a renowned strategist from the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-24 AD), who sought refuge in the area, then known as Qingyan Mountain, now Zhangjiajie. Fearing execution by Liu Bang, the first emperor of the Han Dynasty, Zhang Liang chose this location for its serene beauty and seclusion, becoming a hermit and allegedly planting seven ginkgo trees. He was eventually buried beneath the same mountain. The name ‘Zhangjiajie’ is believed to derive from his lineage, with “Zhang” referring to his surname, “Jia” meaning family, and “Jie” signifying homeland or border.

Geographical and Natural Features

The park’s most distinguished geographic feature is its array of towering pillar-like formations. Contrary to appearances, these structures are not a result of limestone karst processes but are formed through extensive physical erosion over many years. The weathering of these pillars largely owes to winter ice expansion and the growth of plant life on them. The region experiences moist weather throughout the year, leading to dense vegetation. Streams primarily carry away the weathered material from these formations, which have become iconic in the Chinese landscape, often depicted in ancient paintings.

Park officials note that the stunning visuals of Zhangjiajie, particularly these unique formations, served as inspiration for the floating Hallelujah Mountains in the film “Avatar.

KM7402 – From Moscow to Beijing

Last Updated on 2020/10/30

“At the first route, from Moscow to Irkutsk, I’ve passed four days and a half in the train, passing through 5000 kilometers of forests…”

Text & images by Aristide Russo

“Impossible, you’re crazy, i could never stay four days and half in a train, what have you done four days and half in a train?
“and this was only the first step…”

Round and round this is the answer that more or less everybody gives me when I start to tell you about that mystical trip, the transmongolic. The curious thing is that in the end, nobody wants to know how did it go for real, or what means doing a trip like this, sensations, emotions, how to stay in a train for so much time can change you, how much can be important to share your life with people that normally live in the opposite sides of the world, or simply to taste a mutton soup in the Mongolian dining car on a Chinese train crossing the Gobi desert, to ride a Mongolian horse for about 5 hours in the Mongolian steppe, to loose almost half hour for only 3 stops of the Chinese subway of Beijing, to be lost to find the most unlikely places and the most incredible people…

But most of all, how is to feel like a traveler?

maybe is dull listen to someone telling all these stories, probably is hard to be so much curious, or more simply often is not interesting, but maybe, actually, it’s impossible to tell this trip without photography.

Rice paddy art in China

Last Updated on 2022/04/22

Last July 2014 in Shenyang, Liaoning province, rice field paintings attracted great attention.

453,000 square meters of fields are embodied and feature simple and abstract patterns, characters, human figures, animals, and plants. Nezha Conquers the Dragon King is one of the most attractive pictures featured; Nezha is a deity from ancient Chinese mythology and literature.

Shenyang started creating rice field art in 2012 and hosted it annually. “Qixinglongteng”, “Seven stars and one dragon” created in 2012, created in Shenbei New Area, is considered one of the largest rice paddy artwork in the world. The city because of its 100000 square meters of rice paddy art, received the certification of the biggest rice field painting in the world from WRA.

World Record Association (abbreviated as WRA) formally registered in 2010, was established through approval from the Hong Kong Government and is a commercial record organization to list non-sports civilian world records.
Now northeast China’s Shenyang city is becoming a hot tourist attraction thanks to its rice fields.

Rice paddy art is an art form originating in Japan in 1993. The people of Inakadate, Aomori were looking for a way to revitalize their village. To honor the 2000 years of growing rice area, they decided to use the paddy as a canvas and cultivate four different types and colors of rice to create giant pictures. To allow viewing of the whole picture, they erected a high castle tower.

Manufacturing: Striking Burtynsky Images on Working Conditions in China

Last Updated on 2021/11/18

Working Conditions in China

In the southern province of Guangdong, one can drive for hours along numerous highways that reveal a virtually unbroken landscape of factories and workers’ dormitories.

These new ‘manufacturing landscapes’ in the southern and eastern parts of China produce more and more of the world’s goods and have become the habitat for a diverse group of companies and millions of busy workers. Pick up almost any commonly used product and you won’t be surprised to find that it was made in China. It is here that 90 percent of your Christmas decorations are made, 29 percent of color television sets, 75 percent of the world’s toys, 70 percent of all cigarette lighters, and probably every T-shirt in your closet. The hard drive for your iPod mini was made in the city of Guiyang (Guizhou). Located in China’s poorest province, Guiyang is more noted for its poverty than for making state-of-the-art one-inch hard drives. Working the assembly lines, China’s youthful peasant population is quickly abandoning traditional extended-family village life, leaving the monotony of agricultural work and subsistence income behind for a chance at independence.

Inexpensive labor from the countryside, important as it is to China’s growth as a trading nation, is one major facet of its success. Just as important is a rising industrial production capability. China now plays a central role in the global supply chain for the world’s multinational corporations. Wal-Mart alone outsourced $15 billion US in manufacturing, making the company (if it were a country) China’s eighth-largest trading partner. Altogether, nearly half of China’s foreign trade is tied to foreign-invested enterprises in China. This investment stimulated managerial, organizational, and technical expertise that China has fully integrated into its business model. Since the early 1990s, more than one-half trillion U.S. dollars have flowed into this country’s manufacturing sector, mainly from its Asian neighbors; Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Singapore, and then additionally from North America and Europe. China has moved up the manufacturing ladder and today exports an increasingly sophisticated array of products. Its manufacturing future rests not just in being able to absorb technology but also in becoming an innovator and a source for new technology.

Edward Burtynsky

Nature transformed through industry is a predominant theme in Edward Burtynsky’s work. Recycling yards, mine tailings, quarries, and refineries are all places that are outside of our normal experience, yet we partake of their output on a daily basis. These images are meant as metaphors to the dilemma of our modern existence; they search for a dialogue between attraction and repulsion, seduction, and fear. Edward Burtynsky has an impressive cv. He won many awards and honors (Planet in Focus Media/Industry Eco-Hero Award; ICP Infinity Award, Art category, International Center of Photography, New York; Prix Pictet, London, U.K., Nomination & Short Listed, 3 honorary degrees, Officer of the Order of Canada, TED prize, etc). Edward Burtynsky is known as one of Canada’s most respected photographers. His remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes are included in the collections of over fifty major museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Bibliotèque Nationale in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Amazing Flood pictures at Xiaolangdi Dam in China

Last Updated on 2021/11/18

Sand-washing operation conducted in China’s Xiaolangdi Reservoir.

Tourists watch water gushing out from the Xiaolangdi Reservoir on the Yellow River during a sand-washing operation in Luoyang, central China’s Henan Province, June 30, 2014. The on-going operation works by discharging water from the reservoir to clear up the sediment in the Yellow River, the country’s second-longest waterway. This year, the sand-washing operation will be jointly conducted in Xiaolangdi Reservoir, Sanmenxia Reservoir, and Wanjiazhai Reservoir, an effort to make speeding currents carry tons of sand into the sea. The Yellow River has been plagued by an increasing amount of mud and sand. Each year, the river bed rises as silt deposits build-up, slowing the water flow in the lower reaches. (Xinhua/Zhu Xiang)

China through the lenses of David Gamble: 40 images

Last Updated on 2022/04/22

David Gamble (Cincinnati, 1890 – Sydney, 1968), the grandson of James Gamble, founder of Procter & Gamble in 1837, visited China for four periods doing Christian social work for the Y.M.C.A and conducting social surveys.

Related articles: The Photographic Work of Arthur Rothstein in China, The first photographs of Hong Kong, the Second Opium War, and Beijing, Felice Beato in 1860, Amazing restored old photographs of China

He is now best known for his remarkable photographs of Beijing and North China.

Gamble first toured in 1908 accompanying his parents, then after graduating from Princeton in 1912, studied labor and industrial economics at the University of California, Berkeley, spending six months on a fellowship working at a reform school for delinquent boys. At this time, he built the house which became known as the Sidney D. Gamble House.

In 1917, he joined the work of Princeton-in-Peking and the Peking YMCA where his Princeton friend John Stewart Burgess invited him to do the surveys which resulted in Peking: A Social Survey, which included more than fifty photographs. In 1919 Gamble was on hand to capture dramatic photographs of the May Fourth student demonstrations. The motto of the May Fourth Movement, “To save China through science and democracy,” and the missionary ideal of “Saving China through Christianity” for a time seemed to be united. When he returned with his bride, Elizabeth Lowe, to China in 1924, he used his family resources to hire a team of Chinese researchers to survey 283 families. The book was published in 1933 as How Chinese Families Live in Peiping (as Peking was then called). In 1926, Gamble traveled for three weeks in the Soviet Union with Sherwood Eddy, a longtime mentor.

As China became more and more inflamed by patriotic agitation and warlord fighting, he found hope in the Ting Hsien Experiment in Rural Reconstruction conducted by James Yen’s Mass Education Movement. In 1931-32 Gamble traveled to China for the fourth and final time to organize the surveys which he used for three more detailed volumes, Ting Hsien: A North China Rural Community (1954) and North China Villages (1963). Chinese Village Plays, published in 1970, after his death, give translations based on unique transcriptions of now lost village yang ko plays, which differ from the later dances.

Jonathan Spence concludes of Gamble that his “findings were open-minded, clear-headed, methodologically intelligent (though not always beyond criticism by scholars of different views), startlingly imaginative, and — when presented in photographic form — vigorous, ebullient, unsentimental, and starkly, yet never cruelly, illustrative of the deep and real suffering that lay at the heart of China’s long revolution.”
