WASILEWSKA-DOBKOWSKA, J., Steam Age in the Land of the Dragon Joseph Skarbek and His China Pictures 1906-1909, Warsaw 2001. Softcover 18 x 25,5 cm. 48 pag. met 41 sepia coloured photographs.
"From the black and white photographs there emerges a colorful image of traditional China, which was just then facing the impact of Western modernity. Fairs, picturesque New Year celebrations, half naked workers on the construction site, women treading carefully on their deformed feet - all this variety of senses appealed to the photographer. Joseph Skarbek photographed not only every day life but also the then little known historical monuments of Henan province, the heart of the Middle Kingdom, whose pictures emanate peace and melancholy."
