This exhibition is the culmination of a three-year trek across China in which the young (29 year old) artist photographed rural scenes evocative of ancient poems in the classic anthology, the Book of Odes. But first he immersed himself for a year in the text and its canonical commentaries. The show takes place in close conjunction with another from the same series at Chambers Fine Arts’ Beijing gallery.
