Wang Gangfeng In Deepest China
Wang Gangfeng's portraits of life have been published in his home country of China and abroad. These brilliant and emotive black and white photographs have been exhibited in Toronto, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, where he currently resides.
Born in 1956, Wang Gangfeng worked as both a farm laborer and violinist for a revolutionary orchestra. The gift of a Chinese-made camera from his sister altered the course of Gangfeng's life. Although Wang had few funds to buy camera equipment, he did study books on photography and its various techniques. By 1985, Wang was making his living as a photographer, working for local Chinese newspapers and foreign corporate publications.
Wang focuses on life in city neighborhoods and villages in the Chinese countryside. This exhibition features Wang's images of everyday lives of peasants and their villages. His unique ability to remain unobtrusive and unobserved by his subjects has enabled Wang to honestly and compassionately reveal the enduring China
