In the Song Dynasty (sòng cháo 宋朝), an artist called Wen Tong (wén tóng 文同) was especially fond of drawing bamboos. He planted a lot of bamboos in his garden so that he could observe the process of their growth and appearance in different seasons. He knew bamboos so well that whenever he took up the paintbrush he already had a picture in his mind, and thus he could always paint bamboos in a vivid and lively way.

ON THE ROAD
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China
By Cool Han

How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man? ForeignerCN.com correspondent Cool Han sits down with China photographer Tom Carter to seek out the answer.
The author of CHINA: Portrait of a People, Tom Carter is a rising star in photojournalism. His new book of photography is the largest collection of images on contemporary China ever published by one author.
