Photographs by Wang Qingsong. Text by Mag Maggio.
Timezone 8 / Courtyard, Hong Kong, 2005. 30 pp., 18 color illustrations, 9½x11½".
Wang Qingsong may be China’s answer to David LaChappelle or Pierre et Gilles.

Qingsong’s modern re-productions are replete with all the kitsch and irony of today’s Chinese society, in which the old world frequently mingles (to varied results) with the new.
