Deans Hall Gallery, Building SA, Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Ye Gao-xing, Su Jian, Shen Jian-huang, Wang Peiquan, Pan Shiguo, Zheng Zhong-min

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 7, to Thu, Nov 17 2011

Curator: Liu Shuyong
Produced by Yan Li

This exhibition consists of works from six photographers of Lishui City in China’s Zhejiang Province. The six photographers each chose to capture and record different aspects of life in the region: portraits of local people, small villages near the city, traditional crafts, daily life, corridor bridges, and working tools.

With China’s large-scale expansion and the rapid advance of urbanization, these poetic pastoral mountain scenes and cultural landscapes showing productivity in simple village life are now rapidly vanishing. Therefore, these six photographers, as ordinary citizens with a common point of view, express their frustration and disillusionment in the face of this sudden new reality. When these landscapes and this vibrant and vivid group of people have become only a memory, perhaps only these images, at some unknown moment in the future, will be able to evoke our shared cultural past.
