THE CHINESE PHOTOBOOK: FROM THE 1900S TO THE PRESENT. New edition. Ed. by Martin Parr and WassinkLundgren. Aperture Foundation, Inc., New York, 2016. Original edition published 2015 {Worldwide 36565}. 448 pp. with 1320 ills. (1312 col.). 30 x 26 cm. LC 2015-3505 ISBN 9781597113755 In English.
This new edition is published in a smaller format than the original, oversized edition. Publisher's description: Newly revised histories of photography as recorded via the photobook have added enormously to our understanding of the medium's culture, particularly in places that are often marginalized, such as Latin America and Africa. However, until now, only a handful of Chinese books have made it onto historians' short lists. Yet China has a fascinating history of photobook publishing, and The Chinese Photobook reveals for the first time the richness and diversity of this heritage. Now available in a smaller size, this more accessibly priced hardcover edition is based on a collection compiled by Martin Parr and Beijing- and London-based Dutch photographer team WassinkLundgren. And while the collection was inspired initially by Parr's interest in propaganda books and in finding key works of socialist realist photography from the early days of the Communist Party and the Cultural Revolution era, the selection of books includes key volumes published as early as 1900, as well as contemporary volumes by emerging Chinese photographers.
