About this title


Featuring the most prominent names in contemporary Chinese photography, these pocket-sized monographs explore the extraordinary diversity of the genre and showcase a creative, liberated, and unique artistic perspective. The collections present an obscure tableau of modern Chinese society, from magnificent landscapes and never-before-seen industrial compounds to the desires of China’s new youth and its growing sociopolitical challenges. The imagery from some of the most exciting artists working today—including “the invisible man” photos of Liu Bolin and the world-famous coal miner portraits of Song Chao—is prefaced with a concise essay that explains the background and inspiration of each featured photographer.


Featuring the art phenomenon of the year, this playful little book takes us into the magical performances of Liu Bolin. For each of his works, Liu Bolin stands still for hours, being meticulously painted to melt into his surroundings before having the photograph taken. Like a chameleon, Liu Bolin appears and disappears in his images. From China to Italy, from a highway to a supermarket, wherever he is, he just disappears. Far from being merely playful, Liu Bolin’s performances go beyond a simple game of hide-and-seek to make us notice what we no longer see in the world.
