FROM "NEW PHOTOGRAPHY" TO ROOKIE AWARD: THREE SHADOWS' COLLECTION

2013-11-05

In the 1990s, unlike the generation of photographers who sought out salon aesthetics and critical social perspectives in their pursuit of the new photographic vernacular of the post Cultural Revolution era, those of the “new photography” trend tend to invest their focus on themselves. Whether done consciously or unconsciously, they began with the self-reflective characteristic of photography and adopt the macroscopic perspective as a vehicle of image creation. Among the images created through the “mirror”, they have presented the confusion, anxiety and depression of a generation. Thereafter, more photographers began to explore the possibilities beyond the political and social criticism. The “Three Shadows Photography Award” initiated in 2008, has reviewed the possibility of extending such explorations while discovering new photographers. The younger generation’s exploration is often more diversified that reveals more depth and keener perceptions and expressions. This exhibition is to demonstrate such explorations in Chinese photography since the 1990s through the collection of “Three Shadows”.
