History of China in photos

IMG_0585One of the things I enjoy about London are the galleries and exhibitions, such as the one I visited yesterday. The Chinese Photobook at the Photographers Gallery explores aspects of China’s history from the Empire and Peoples Republic of China (1900 to 1949) to the present.

It’s beautifully laid out and worth the trip. Having said that I happily stumbled on it whilst visiting Oxford Street. The exhibition is open until 5th July this year. It was free entry when I went – a Saturday – but I don’t know whether there’s a charge for other days.

I personally enjoy looking at early period photographs and thinking about the development of the genre (film too. I miss the Museum of Moving Image).IMG_0581
