"That so-called 'past' in our memories, was an era of red idealism, it is actually not that far away at all from our lives today. The 'Red Five Star' is the icon representing red China, and is still inextricably intermingled with our 'today'," writes Zhu Yiyong.
"'The Memories of China Series' is filled with my striving for the spirit of care in humanity. Through the innocent eyes of the children, I want to link yesterday, today and tomorrow, and to find a new way to interpret our past, present, ideology and reality."
