Until Death Do Us Part focuses on the unexpected role cigarettes play in Chinese weddings. As a token of appreciation, it is customary for the bride to light a cigarette for each and every man invited. The bride and the groom are then invited to play some cigarette-smoking games o f an unprecedented ingenuousness. This publication pays homage to a tradition in which love and death walk hand in hand.

These photos come from the Beijing Silvermine project, an archive of half a million negatives salvaged over the years from a recycling plant on the edge of Beijing.

《双喜》关注的是香烟在中国婚宴上扮演的令人意想不到的角色。

“敬烟”是中国婚宴上的一个约定俗成的规矩。新娘子要给每一位到场的男士点烟,以示感谢。同时,新郎新娘会被要求完成一些粗糙却也充满想象力的“抽烟”游戏。这个出版物即是向这个爱与死亡完美结合的传统致敬。

里面的全部照片来自“北京银矿”——一个由50万张从北京边缘垃圾站逐年抢救回来的废旧底片组成的资料库。
