City Wall by Wang Jinsong
According to artist Wang Jinsong, the camera is a surrogate eye, our eye. Each click is like a blink, a momentary recording, a souvenir of a moment that existed but is now in the past. City Wall-Beijing is composed of a thousand individual architectural photographs that stand together as an elegant documentation of postmodern city life in China. The work is a testament to the modern change that has occurred in the capital of Chinaa —transformation of the urban landscape that seems to have taken place in a blink of an eye.
