Rong Rong ed: ZHONGGUO SHEYING: ERSHI SHIJI YILAI. Chinese Photography Since the Twentieth Century. Beijing, 2015. 557 pp. Colour and b/w photographs throughout. 31x25 cm. Cloth.
Fascinating and very welcome catalogue produced to accompany an exhibition of Chinese photography throughout the twentieth century (the title is somewhat misleading!). Covers the Republic period and on through China's lengthy wartime struggles culminating in the establishment of the Peoples Republic in 1949.
Thence through New China 1949-1968 and examination of contemporary photography in the post-Mao era. A welcome contribution to the subject and a good reference. Illustrated throughout and with a dual text in Chinese and English. Hard to obtain.
