草场地 CAO



a collection by (禤达乾) steven hien

前言 Preface

The urban village of Caochangdi (草场地) of Beijing will always hold a special place in my heart. I have grown to love and appreciate the village during my two-month stay as a resident and researcher for B.A.S.E. (Beijing Architecture Studio Enterprise). This collection of photographs for me captures the richness and liveliness of Caochangdi through its people: their character, interactions, and activies.

Photography, Design and Text by Steven Hien. Translation by Echo Xiang and Liu Yang. All photographs were taken in Caochangdi, Beijing in the Summer of 2012 with Canon EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR. Made in China.
