Until Death Do Us Part - Shuang Xi
BK-034Regular price $ 58.00
Until Death Do Us Part [双喜] focuses on the unexpected role cigarettes play in Chinese weddings.
As a token of appreciation, it is customary for the bride to light a cigarette for each and every man invited. The bride and the groom are then invited to play some cigarette-smoking games of an unprecedented ingenuousness. This publication pays homage to a tradition in which love and death walk hand in hand.
These photos come from Thomas Sauvin's Beijing Silvermine project - an archive of half a million negatives salvaged over the years from a recycling plant on the outskirts of Beijing.
