Chinese Shadows

Regular price £11.50

Tax included.

A selection of little-known or unpublished prints from the archive of photographic collections from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Photographs by Helene Hoppenot of monuments and landscapes in 1930's China, followed by Andre Travert's pictures capturing the profound transformations in China after 1947, during The Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. 

Both photographers were connected to the French diplomatic mission in China. Their work, which covers the period between the 1930s and 1950s, offers a unique glimpse into the nation and its people.
