Patrick Dransfield, a long-term resident of Hong Kong, has long attempted to express through the medium of photography and writing, the empathetic connectedness we share as human beings. He has a deep interest in the visual arts and literature, of both the west and China. “It is my profound hope that through preserving these fleeting moments of Beijing street life from the 1980s, east and west can once again be reminded of our common humanity: our common needs, desires, hopes and dreams.”
A trove of lost photographs shows China on the cusp of change. “Track of Time” includes a foreword by Rana Mitter, essays and descriptions by Patrick Dransfield, and over 60 black and white pictures, taken by Patrick in Beijing and Datong in 1986.
The “Track of Time” collection recently featured in the Financial Times “How to Spend It” magazine (October 17, 2020) and the exhibition of the same name, curated by Carsten Schael, at the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents’ Club.
