Chinese photography


Chinese photography is photography from the nation of China. The characteristic division of such creative work is between either photojournalism or fine art photography.


Many artist-photographers have had success, especially in the west. Although their work has not been as explicitly political as that by very similar conceptual artists in the west, it has used the same repertoire of ‘shock’(震撼); nakedness(裸体), swear words(脏字), dead babies(死婴) and elephant dung(象粪), among other items that have now become tired clichés(陈腔滥调). Some photographers also work in ‘Chinese kitsch’ (中国庸俗艺术)- sometimes called “Mao goes Pop”(“毛氏波普”) — a collage style very similar to western pop art of the 1960s.
