    About this book

This album analyses and interprets contemporary Chinese
photography in terms of its historical development, conception
of art, representative artists and their creative works. It is
arguably the most authoritative and comprehensive publication
reflecting the photographic arts in modern-day China.

The works of the fifty most renowned Chinese photographers,
including documentary, behavioral and conceptual
photography, are gathered together in this volume. These
professionals are the vanguard of their era. Their works of
art vividly present to the reader the developmental sequence
of nearly three decades of contemporary photography,
and reveal trends for its future directions as well.

Contemporary Chinese Photographic Arts is divided into three
parts: Part One summarises the political, economic, historical,
artistic and other aspects that comprise the 'inheritance' of
Chinese contemporary photography; Part Two, the main text,
gathers the artists' works and classifies them according to
these themes: 'Globalisation and the consumer landscape,'
'Urbanisation,' 'Memory and tradition,' 'Mundane landscapes,'
'Social gender and identity,' and 'Margins and frontiers.'
In order to enable the reader to comprehend creative intent,
representative works are displayed, and each artist's experience
and artistic life are captured through text and interviews. Part
Three summarises key happenings in the development of Chinese
photography, such as influential exhibitions, events and auctions.

Contemporary Chinese Photographic Arts principally targets
artists, collectors, researchers, students and museums, as well
as those with a passion for contemporary photography.
