The photos of Bouchakour tell us about the old walled neighborhoods of Beijing, also known as Hutongs. These districts do slowly make place for skyscrapers.
Peking Dog shows the symbolic status of cars, even in the Hutongs, and the mission to protect the cars against the rise of another new status symbol: a private dog. Every day the parked car is protected with all possible materials for pissing dogs.
The photos carry the poetry of the street like a classic, melancholy blues, with a wink.
This special edition consits the book + photoprint + box, all numbered and signed.
