When the Peoples' Republic set up its Special Economic Zones in the 1980s communist China entered into global trade and international capital. This photographic exploration shows how a casual glance, moment of doubt or a quick trip to the shopping mall can tell us as much about modern China as any image of a dam, a protest or a teeming workforce.
