Contemporary Chinese Photography

The main reason why I was looking for Weng Peijun’s work is his series Great Family Aspirations. I find it very interesting how quite a few Chinese photographers use these staged photos to re-interpret imagery from the country’s past, be it the most recent or the more ancient one, to comment on political or sociological trends.
