As part of her fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University, Claire Roberts (Australian National University/Powerhouse Museum (Australia) will be conducting research for a book that explores the history of photography in China. Since its introduction in the 1840s, photography has become a complex, culturally inflected medium, used for a variety of public and private purposes, and is today a powerful and pervasive form of visuality in China. While many books have been written about photography and China, there is no historical overview of photography in China from the 1840s to the present focusing on the work of Chinese and non-Chinese photographers. Her research will focus on important archival collections in the US and China, many of them hitherto neglected by researchers.
This presentation by Ms Roberts on 'Photography and China' forms part of the Fellows' Presentation Series of meetings.
