China has experienced many significant changes over the past 40 years, and photos from this era have documented some major historical moments.

The Power of Time: Pictorial Records of China's Reform and Opening-Up, edited by Jijun Chai, is a fantastic photobook presenting a visual feast of China's unprecedented economic growth between 1978 and 2018. The 340-page hardback documents how different photographers within this timeframe used their craft to skillfully capture panoramic snapshots of transient moments that characterized China after the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). 

The book offers a curated selection of more than 300 works by Chinese and foreign photographers that objectively capture important developments in technology, consumption, infrastructure and society over the past 40 years from many different angles. Short texts accompanying each photo provide a concise and easy-to-read history of key events.
