C Foundation financed the publication of photograph collection Doors of Beijing Hutong (Beijing hutong de men)
Mr. Wang Jian started to take pictures in 1965. Over the several decades since then, he visited many Beijing Hutongs (narrow alleys), big or small, and took thousands of photos featuring their doors. He hopes to preserve the photos of those old Hutong doors and keeps alive the ancient culture they embody. C Foundation, guided by one of its principles, “inheriting and preserving Chinese culture”, selected some photos of great value for publication. Doors of Beijing Hutongs, a true and visual record of doors to courtyards of Beijing, was published at the end of 2015 and hopefully is worth reading for reference or research.
