Description
Over a period of many years, Daniel Schwartz has meticulously photographed one of mankind's supreme monuments—the Great Wall of China. These 130 atmospheric black and white photographs convey the majesty of the structure, while also documenting the often stark landscape that the wall traverses. The Chinese historian Luo Zhewen, who dedicated his life to the study of the Great Wall, contributes a brief history, appearing alongside Jorge Luis Borges's meditation "The Wall and the Books" and an extract from Franz Kafka's short story "The Great Wall of China."
