"This new book by photographer Shaobai Li explores the still mysterious ancient temple grounds of the Forbidden City. Once the secluded realm of emperors and court officials, the Forbidden City retains a hold on the imagination. Now open to the public, it must rank as one of the most photographed places in the world. This collection, however, shows a different face to the Forbidden City and is a deeply personal evocation of the hidden and mysterious corners of the place. Li focuses on the minute details of the Forbidden City, not only showing familiar objects in a new light, but also finding a near spiritual beauty suffused through the ancient structures. The book includes discussions of the architecture of the Forbidden City and describes some of the incredible events that transpired here throughout its long history. In Chinese and English."
