Publisher's Description

Newly available as mid-sized, accessibly priced edition

Exhaustively researched and beautifully presented, The Chinese Photobook tells the story of photography in China, through the selection of the best photobooks made in and about China—in the process throwing new light on the history of ideas in China generally. Driven by the interest of the great photobook expert Martin Parr, the book tells the story of China through discoveries from the colonial period, the Art Deco movement, propaganda and socialist realist photography from the Communist Revolution, and the cult of the image of Mao during the Cultural Revolution, to the dazzling variety of contemporary work emerging out of China’s art scene today.
