Agnes Varda photography – China

In 1957, the People’s Republic of China was not yet recognized by the United Nations, and was closed to most foreigners.

As beautiful as little cats.

I felt very honored to be part of the French group invited to bring their experiences from different backgrounds to the young People’s Republic. I was determined to do the best job possible as a photographer. There was so much to discover—everything.
