Here’s looking at you! @ Shanghai Center of Photography
Discover how the way people are photographed has changed since 1985 until today. This exhibition draws from three sources: the Beijing Silvermine archive, an on-going salvage operation conceived by French national Thomas Sauvin in 2009; Little North Road, a project conceived by American photographer Daniel Traub, produced in collaboration with photographers Zeng Xianfang and Wu Yongfu, which paints a unique picture of Guangzhou’s socio-economic landscape; and, to counteract the seriousness of the previous two, an archive of Hefei-based street photographer Liu Tao, who snaps pics of people in their most unconscious forms, the “anti-thesis” of the selfie, if you will.
