Chinese landscape lends itself to dramatic photography. He Yining will illustrate how contemporary Chinese photographers observe and interpret landscape, both natural and artificial. From the Chinese coastline to the Yangtze River, from expressways to the Great Wall, landscape has become an indispensable subject in contemporary Chinese photography. As represented through the camera lenses of Chinese artists, these images are closely related to power, memory and identity. He Yining’s talk examines how they connect with both the fast-changing Chinese reality and different Chinese and Western landscape traditions.
