Footwear video diaries
Originally intended for a corporate feed back meeting in 2000 – decided to re edit, add more footage and expand to give a broader perspective on China’s developing Footwear Industry which started in Southern China where existing manufacturing business’s moved from Hong Kong and Taiwan; and where many mainland factory owners learnt their trade. The exposure to Western Shoe traders and technicians brought further expertise to China. The 180 million migrant workers that came from China’s rural provinces brought their labour. And the footwear business became a part of the biggest collaboration in human history - the export manufacturing revolution in China
The images were shot on various business trips in the 5 years from 2000 to 2005.
