Hutong life, framed – a photo essay by Siok Siok Tan

Editor’s note: We’re proud to present a selection of a dozen photographs by the talented Siok Siok Tan, a Beijing resident who took a picture of hutong life every day for a year. Check out her Instagram and her website for much more like this, or track down a copy of her book of photography People of Beijing (人在北京). We hope these snapshots of life bring out the human side of China’s capital and the residents who bring everyday joy, activity and struggle to its streets.  Alec Ash
