Tom Zetterstrom's photographs offer a glimpse of China's people in only the third year of Deng Xiaoping's "Reform and Opening Up." They were taken before globalization or discos, before cell phones, during Mr. Zetterstrom's 1981 trip hosted by the Yale-China Association. The photographs were exhibited at the Asia Society and toured nationally in the 1980s, but have not been displayed for 30 years. The people in these color and black-and-white portraits are guileless, everyday people who stand on the brink of enormous social change.
