About this title

Synopsis:

Inspired by the memories of his mother, originally told to Dinu Li as childhood bedtime stories, this text traces the story of a woman born in rural China and her escape to a new life via Hong Kong and eventually to the industrial north of England.

Review:

'The Mother of All Journeys' charmingly examines the memories of the photographer's mother and her journey from rural China to Manchester, with an intervening 20 or so years in Hong Kong. The book combines her old family snapshots with contemporary images taken by Li in all three locations. It delicately displays the poignancy of the family photograph, illustrating the gap between memory and present-day reality. We also learn much about the issues and difficulties surrounding immigration. With respect and sensitivity, photography can become a valuable form of therapy. --Martin Parr, Best photography books of 2007 - The Sunday Times
