My first trip to China was when I was 18 ­years old, and it just so happened to be 1989 and the time of the Tiananmen Massacre. A scant few images I made in Beijing were the first I published and sold. In the more than 20 years since, I've returned to China with fits and starts, witnessing the Hong Kong handover of 1997, the Sichuan earthquake in 2008, and the outbreak of ethnic violence in Xinjiang in 2009. But what I care about most and always go back to is my “hometown” of Toishan in Guangdong Province.
