The most complete monograph of China’s most famous photographer. Oversized and impressive staged images that brings us into the changes of China’s last two decades. A must have.
Showcasing the works of Wang Qingsong, China’s most reknowned photographer. His overscaled photographs, requiring hundreds of models and weeks of labor to create his gigantic stages, are redefining the scale of photography. His works are like still narratives of China’s mutation over the last few decades. Combining a pop and kitch aesthetic with humor, Wang Qingsong tackles the main issues challenging his country and the world today. Wang Qingsong is a reference in Chinese contemporary art.
"This is the reason he ironically defines his art as a sort of journalism. Paradoxically, it is by constructing and manipulating the image that he will humourously bring out the truth of a situation.”
