Shanghai-based artist Maleonn 马良 (aka Ma Liang) has travelled around 25 Chinese provinces, photographing 1, 600 people in a mobile photo studio and posting the images on his Weibo account from February to November 2012. Taking several months to prepare for the project which included painting sets and backgrounds, making the costumes, producing the props, and arranging locations, the artist established a set of guidelines for his subjects. There would be a minimum of eight people per city who would provide food, accommodations and a space to work for him and his team. The subjects (ranging from young children to old people) would be dressed up in various types of fantasy dress like tank drivers, policemen, Tang Dynasty scholars.

Hu Lie 胡力

From Photography in China: “In Backward-Backward, Hu Li (born in 1955) displays with monumentality characters that are wearing splendid costumes of traditional Chinese theatre and standing in atypical surroundings. These marvellous diptyches - composed of inhospitable landscapes - on the one hand celebrate one of the archetypes of ‘traditional China’; while on the other complain about the progressive erasure of this very heritage.”
