The Camera in China: The Nineteenth and Early-Twentieth Centuries (Cancelled)

Saturday 18 November 2017, 10.00AM4.30pm

In the mid-nineteenth century an increasing number of Western photographers began to record the landscape and peoples of China. A similarly large number of Chinese photographers soon followed as China became open to British and Western influence. This course examines both prominent and minor photographers, Western and Chinese, and contrasts Western photographers’ interest in timeless ethnographic photography with Chinese photographers’ work in capturing such real and sudden events as typhoons, shipwrecks, floods and political upheaval.
