Wang Qingsong


Contemporary Chinese Photography


I revisited Chinese photographer Wang Qingsong’s website and was - again - quite impressed with his work. His more recent tableau pieces are excellent, and I especially like the simple statements that go with them. His elaborately staged scenes remind me of Gregory Crewdson’s work. In any case, make sure to look at the two masterpieces China Mansion and Romantique. I think those must be some of the most creative commentaries I’ve ever seen on Western culture entering another culture. Also don’t miss Night Revels of Lao Li, made available online by The First Post.
