Synopsis: Photographs by Robert Capa, Lois Conner, Stuart Franklin, Zhang Hai-er, Wu Jialin, Wang Jinsong, Hiroji Kubota, Sebastião Salgado, Liu Heung Shing, and Others

A stirring tribute to china's land and people, and a lasting vision of the country within.

To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, Aperture is publishing Imaging China. This magnificent volume unfolds a series of in-depth portfolios by twenty of the most important Chinese and Western photographers of the era, conveying the extent of their involvement in politics, culture, and everyday life. Together with texts by leading thinkers, writings by the photographers, and selections of ancient and modern poetry, this collection offers profound insight into a country that has been closed to the West for more than half of its existence.

Drawn to China by its dramatic upheavals and its rich cultural legacy, the world's greatest photographers offer thrilling proof of the power of photography to explore-and convey-the human experience. From France's Henri Cartier-Bresson, present at the creation of the Republic in 1949, to China's Liu Heung Shing, who chronicled a society in transition following the death of Mao Tse-tung, to Wu Jialin and Stuart Franklin working today, the image makers represented here have created visions of China as broad and diverse as the country and its society. Imaging China is an extraordinary visual exploration of an extraordinary place and time.

From Library Journal: Since 1985, Conner has hauled a 40-pound banquet camera around China. This camera produces 7" x 17" negatives, which give her a panoramic view of the large, visually complex nation. The foreword by Jonathan Spence (sinology, Yale Univ.) is both an appreciation of Conner's work and a useful guide to the politics, culture, and economics that lie beneath her photographs. China, as presented here, is both a dusty relic and a carelessly patched together place full of dangling wires, unfinished projects, and flimsy-looking architecture that is an enduring eyesore. The Chinese, who move in and out of these images, are not camera shy; they appear ready for the modern world while often dwelling where it intersects with a muddy path through a shantytown. There is little beauty here, but there are carefully composed and lovingly textured images of a China that has mysteries yet to be revealed. Conner has made an important visual contribution for all Westerners interested in China. Expensive but recommended.DDavid Bryant, New Canaan Lib., CT
