Publisher's Description

In the beginning of 2014, the photographer went back to his hometown Kunming and found a Pictures of Six Rivers in Yunnan's Provincial Capital drawn by Huang Shijie, an official in Qing Dynasty. Inspired by the book he started to take sampling photos for Panlong River and tried to identify it again with old memories. At the same time he was researching the relationship between time and space beyond the river.

The Naming of a River is presented as a long gate-fold with images printed on both sides. On one side scattered perspectives of riverside scenery, showing every section of the river; on the other side there are pictures relating to the river in different ways: people meeting along it, rocks showing changes over millions of years, eucalyptus leaves growing with each season, a chart of shells to be found within and along the river and more.
