Wang Tong

Wang Tong travels around China to find previous propaganda traces on the wall, he takes what’s there for his photo recording. As he said this is like a race with the modern development construction, he had used more than ten years to complete ‘Mao on the Wall’ series. The images in this series are probably all disappeared now. Wang Tong’s images are always crystal sharp and beautifully composed. The high quality documentary photography combines the subtle warm colouring brings viewer back to a nostalgia memory.

王彤长途跋涉地去拍摄那些渐渐逝去的公共宣传画遗迹,他是以记录方式来拍摄的。如他所说,这像是和现代化建设赛跑,他用了超过十年的时间去完成“痕迹”系列,这个系列中的所有图像可能都已经不复存在了。王彤的摄影物象始终清晰无比而且构图优美。高质量的纪实摄影的真实性与他赋予照片温暖柔和的色调引领观者进入到一个美好的怀旧思绪中,这也是艺术家心中记忆的颜色。
