About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

The giant panda has been around for 8 million years. It witnessed the evolution of the late Miocene and the test of the Quaternary glaciers. It was the flagship of the "Giant panda–Stegodon" animal group. The giant panda, has witnessed all the bygone secrets to which human beings want to have a clue. The harmonious and primeval beauty can be best reflected in the peacefully co-existing colors of black and white in the panda.

Among hundreds of millions of people who love and care for the giant panda, Zhou Mengqi, photographer of this picture album, is a native of Chengdu, Sichuan Province, which is the "home of the giant panda". With deep love for this home city and nature, Zhou has spent more than 20 years taking many rare pictures of the giant panda.

Through his lens, readers see the perfect co-existence of black and white, fine movements of the giant panda and its emotional exchanges with human beings. In his pictures, the giant panda is not only a "living fossil" in the biological sense but also a noble being in nature, whose mingling with nature and human is best highlighted thanks to the photographer's unique vision and tender feeling.
