The photographs show various aspects of everyday life in the city. Schiff's thumb-nail sketches relate a narrative in pictures of Mr Pim and Mr Wu as they observe goings-on in Peking. A fine collaboration between the Dutch author-photographer and Friedrich Schiff (1908-1968) who was born in Austria and came to China in 1930 where he worked as caricaturist for several newspapers and illustrated books. Ellen Thorbecke, who is using her maiden name here, was the wife of the Dutch ambassador to China, a Sinophile, who wrote a few books on Shanghai and other Chinese cities, all splendid book productions, as here."

Aesthetic experience at the age of 11 is as vital as at 70. Thus these works are not dated. As this publication is not a reference book, no dimension is given below each work. A work of art is to be experienced in toto in its given format. You turn pages of images. You choose passages of colours."

A grand jury subsequently declined to bring an indictment against him. In 1998 unsuccessful attempts were made to have his books The Last Day of Summer and Radiant Identities classed as child pornography in the U.S. states of Alabama and Tennessee."
