Summary

With its lush and diverse landscapes, ancient ruins, and stunning architecture, China is a photographer's dream. Exploring this visually rich and evocative country, Photography and Chinahighlights Chinese photographers and subjects from the inception of photography to the present day. Drawing on works in museums, and archival and private collections across China, the United States, Europe, and Australia, Claire Roberts locates images from commercial, art, and documentary photography within the broader context of Chinese history. She focuses on the images as well as the studios and individuals who created them, describing the long tradition of Chinese artistic culture into which photography was first absorbed and subsequently expanded. As she recounts the stories of practitioners-from China and overseas-who were agents in that process of change, she also examines the commercial, political, and artistic purposes for which they used photography. Featuring one hundred striking, little-known images, Photography and Chinawill make a significant contribution to photography, Chinese art, and twentieth-century history.
