The Harmony between Man and Heaven

Weixing Zhang

Mausoleum of Song Dynasty (2011)

The Song dynasty mausoleum is one of the most photographed structures in China. Most of the photos use the same straightforward visual language, and testify to respect and honour for nature and history. How could you capture the mausoleum in a fresh, new way? Zhang Weixing chose an approach that resulted in experimental black and white photos which appear to be hand made rather than the product of technical means. The work seems to carry an implicit critique of the way in which current generations deal with cultural heritage.
