Documenting China: Contemporary Photography


BOCA RATON, FL.- The Boca Raton Museum of Art presents Documenting China: Contemporary Photography and Social Change. Hailed by The New York Times as "profound" and "heroic," Documenting China presents 57 dramatic images by seven contemporary Chinese photographers. These raw black-and-white and color photographs unveil the truth about China's internal struggle - a battle between modern industrialism and the traditional, agrarian past that has sustained the country for thousands of years. The work of these seven photographers - Liu Xiaodi, Jiang Jian, Zhang Xinmin, Luo Yongjin, Zhou Hai, Lu Yuanmin and Zhou Ming - offers an astonishing understanding of contemporary Asian society, while revealing the modern essence of the most populous nation on earth from an insider's point of view.

The works tell the gritty, sometimes proud stories of those still struggling to blend into the urban landscape without losing sight of their old ways, and each photographer has a unique way of telling this story, whether through quick snapshots of urban and rural life, or methodically- and artistically-composed with as much emphasis placed on composition and color as on subject matter and context. Documenting China: Contemporary Photography and Social Change is organized by Bates College Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and has been made possible through the generous support of Crystal Cruises. A catalogue for this exhibition is available at the Museum Store.
