"It is a big surprise to find a series of African portraits in a book about China, but there is pleasure to be found in this book where Traub collects the images of two Chinese street photographers who specialize in this subject. He gives this all a context with his own photos of the locality." Martin Parr
"Traub's collaborative project transcends the traditional documentary essay by presenting multiple perspectives, moving back and forth from his own recordings of city life to portraits taken by two local photographers who have given Traub permission to publish their work. The effect is, to some extent, a work of self-documentation by the African community as it interacts with a key segment of the Chinese population-migrant workers who also recently relocated from elsewhere in China and are struggling to find a place for themselves in a dramatically changing China." Lesley A. Martin, Aperture
