Thomas Sauvin, a Frenchman living in China for the past 10 years, has undertaken an awesome salvage project: he travels around Beijing scouring trash dumps and recycling depots for used photo negatives. Thus far Thomas has collected and carefully archived over half a million images. Consider that for a second - more than 500,000 amateur snapshots from the past 20 years.
When a young Chinese artist named Lei Lei learned about the project, which seeks to save and share everyday memories of Chinese people following the Cultural Revolution, he was so touched that he contacted Thomas and asked if he could use the found images to create a piece of animation.
This short video directed by Emiland Guillerme, entitled Beijing Silvermine, tells the story of Thomas Sauvin and his tireless efforts to preserve and share a view of Chinese life in a way that no one else has - using discarded photos. At the end you also get to see the results of the collaboration between Thomas and Lei Lei.
It’s nothing short of fascinating and, all things considered, well worth 12 minutes of your time.
Got no mountain, got no dome. Still I love what I can see from home - I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night!
