Ruben Lundgren / WassinkLundgren, on The Chinese Photobook

The Chinese Photobook, Coming Soon

An interview with Ruben Lundgren of the photography team WassinkLundgren, cocurators of the exhibition The Chinese Photobook, which is currently on display at Aperture Gallery in New York through April 2. Also curated by Martin Parr, this exhibition is based on a collection Parr compiled with the Beijing- and London-based Dutch photographers. The selection of books includes key volumes published as early as 1900, as well as contemporary volumes by emerging Chinese photographers. Each and every featured photobook offers a new perspective on the complicated history of China, from the beginning of the twentieth century onward.
