The photographer focuses on the daily life of ordinary Beijing citizens in alleys inside the Second Ring Road, i.e., the heart of old Beijing. Using pleasurable heart to look at familiar or unfamiliar parts of Beijing, using camera lens to find ordinary or extraordinary life, and using easy languages to tell us important or unimportant stories, Xiaoping seems to chat with people, but he really told us the answer: this is Beijing! And this is the true story of ordinary Beijingers’ clothing, food, housing, transport and amusement.
Beijing yesterday was bright with all kinds of colors, the yesterday life of Beijingers were also multicolored. The photos by Xiaoping bring us back to the familiar alleys, the disappearing life, those warm faces, and those happy days with soul and dreams…
