Pretending to be in Europe
Curator: An Guangxi Photographer: Yu Minshan
The Photographer, Minshan Yu, focused his camera on the surrounding urban landscape. He traveled around Foshan, Guangdong Province to take the shots of all kinds of architectures with European style and present them to us.
Here,the camera helps us illuminate these new landscapes in the city, allowing us to see things we would otherwise ignore.
In his photos, these architectures themselves seemed to be vivid lives, filled with symbols and architectural landscapes composed of foreign cultural symbols. It implies the needs and desires of the city.
These photos not only show us capital, power, wealth and culture, but also present current moral, political, aesthetic and emotional power and social contexts of today’s society. These images enhance some deification and social mentality, and ultimately constitutes the people’s illusion of self-enclose in current society.
