  • About the Lecture

    Shanghai photography in the 1990s emphasizes more on the expression of personalized urban emotions. It significantly differs from the sense of humor given by Beijing urban photography and the reportorial style featured by photographers from Guangdong and other places in the south. This dialogue mainly looks at Zhou Ming’s photography works taken in the 1990s’ Shanghai to uncover his inner reflections about urban life. It will also gradually further its discussion on the possibility of multiple changes coming to urban photography when entering into the 21st century.
