Tony McAteer: China (flat-pack 2) (online)

Tony McAteer

Tony’s project has been published on LensCulture as an Editors’ Pick.

Cultivating an aspirational consumerism and tapping into the wealth of the affluent urban population is now a key feature of China’s economic development. This work is part of a larger project that looks at the remodeling of Chinese cities into hubs of commerce.

The photos peek through the commercial hoardings of demolition and construction sites, giving a complex composition of visual elements – the blurred impressions of image and display in the foreground, tightly cropping the crisp detail and distance of the real scenes beyond.
