From the publisher:
These photos were taken from 1985 to 1990. The little girl in the photos is called Si Si Deng (鄧偲偲), and those pictures were taken by a photographer named Deng Jian (鄧堅), who is Si Si’s father.
Like many papa photographers, Mr. Deng was eager to photograph his baby daughter since her birth. A skilful photographer Mr. Deng had taken photos better than many professional photographers.
Fortunately most of these negatives are still in good condition, this gives us a chance to revisit these vivid images of China thirty years ago.
In Chinese, Si Si means encouraging each other, which comes from Confucius. We can imagine the expectation from the parents when Si Si was born, and we can also witness her growing up in these images.
