RongRong & inri

Three Shadows Photography Art Centre

Currently the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Caochangdi shows two excellent exhibitions: RongRong & inri, the founders of Three Shadows, and secondly of Zhang Kechun.

RongRong & inri's Tsumari Story a series of black and white photos shot in Echigo-Tsumari. They are really impressive and strong pictures, and have been taken after the couple was able to free themselves from the very busy time managing the Three Shadows shortly after its 5th anniversary. The exhibition will be on from July 26th until October 26th.

The second exhibition is Zhang Kechun's series called Yellow River. They represent a body of work which has been shot mainly from 2010 to 2013. They are pale in color and perfectly catch the mood of the stream and its people. Zhang Kechun walked over ten times upstream from Kenli County, Dongyin, Shandong, through Henan, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Gansu, Sichuan, and up to the source near the Bayan Har Mountain in Quinghai. They are long shots taken with a Linhof 4x5 camera, which make them even more brilliant and unreached by any digital camera these days.
