Thomas Sauvin - Silvermine albums

Archive of Modern Conflict Books asked us to create a serie online videos for production. In this video, we use the concept of "color" to create a joyful mood for the albums.


The Silvermine albums offer a unique photographic portrait of the Chinese capital and the lives of its inhabitants covering a period of 1985-2005. The negatives were salvaged from a recycling plant an the edge of Beijing by Beiling-based collector Thomas Sauvin.
