This is Part 3 of a  six-part photo essay by Beijing-based student and artist Liu Qilin, who recently finished his freshman year of undergraduate study at Beijing Normal University. Liu, who goes by the English name Jady, is founder of the Beijing Hutong Team, a loose collective of artists and creatives united in a desire to document Beijing’s inner-city alleys (胡同, hutong), which are currently undergoing a process of “renovation” that many feel is stripping them of their historical and cultural charm.

Liu Qilin says about this photo:

The day before the opening of Luo Music Space, I wandered around in the hutong nearby it. One side of the building had a piece of glass reflecting the trees and the building’s shadow, and I took the opportunity to capture this scene.
