beijing, stories from a city • colors magazine

for the latest issue of colors magazine, two chinese artists, chen jiaojiao and peng yangjun, took their cameras to the streets of beijing. what they show us is a compelling portrait of a city undergoing dramatic economic and cultural transformation. alongside the kinds of photos you see here are personal narratives, and old family photo album pics. it's a really interesting read. see more from colors magazine here.
