Wuhan heritage building documentary photography exhibition
简介Introduction by CECP Yang Fan 杨帆
A city with history, is a city with historical buildings. Buildings contain human and humane deeds, hence they contain history. To keep the historical buildings of a city, is to keep the history of the city.
After the invention of photography, even when the buildings are lost or changed, we can still turn to photos. They might be kept in a dust covered box or in a letter never delivered, but one day they will still testify history.
Development of imaging technology brings development of imaging philosophy. Images can now touch the core narrative of the architecture and change the way people experience the architecture. Sometimes, it’s a more powerful way to experience an architecture by watching the images, rather than by watching the architecture itself. Therefore, even though this is a documentary photo exhibition, you can still see the people behind the cameras. You can see happiness, sorrow, serenity, nostalgia, anger and pride... Don’t forget, it is historical buildings that can arouse feelings so deep and profound.
Historical Buildings and people
Buildings are created and changed by people. They are supposed to serve the people, and actually through time they can shape the people. The relationship between building and people then becomes the culture of the building. This is really the reason that the historical buildings are so interesting.
Embarrassed historical buildings
Why they are not lovely anymore?
