Photographs of the "Eight Immortals Abode" (Baxian'an 八仙庵), the main Daoist temple in Xian 西安, Shanxi province, China. As can be seen from these images, the site was just in the process of being "reclaimed" for Daoist practice and worship.
Photographs taken in the summer of 1985.
Kodak slides, scanned to TIFF with an Epson 4990 scanner. Images converted to lossless JPG and individually postprocessed for color and contrast adjustment.
