Book Description Auf alten, längst abgelaufenen Polaroid-Filmen hält Lukas Birk das sich wandelnde China fest. In dieser ganz eigenen Bildsprache präsentiert er uns seine Vision des Reichs der Mitte: Die den Polaroids innewohnende Nostalgie trifft auf moderne Motive, alte und neue Welt kollidieren. Die Bilder sind dokumentarisch gedacht - allerdings lässt Birk den Personen auf den Bildern Raum auf das Fotografi ertwerden zu reagieren. So erhalten die Bilder eine sehr persönliche Ebene. Birks originelle Bilderwelt zeigt uns in einer neuen Ästhetik ein China von ungewöhnlicher Leuchtkraft. (Text engl.) 38 x 31 cm, 128 S., zahlr. farb. Abbildungen, gebunden.

Book Description Glitterati Inc., USA, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. WE SPECIALIZE IN PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS. From the shelf in our private library. Gold metallic cloth, with slight rubbing at edge of spine. Contents as new. Intro. Lucas Birk Foreword Katherine Don. 127 pages. 83 col photos with pictorial index. Upon relocating to Beijing, photographer Lukas Birk encounters a group of like-minded young 'creatives' who share his sentiment of a nostalgia, almost on the edge of melancholy. Birk uses his father's collection of expired Polaroid film, as a medium, a metaphor for the transformation of modern China and its rapid development - seen here as void of nostalgia. Here is a collision of old and new world visions. Polaroids. Index. Very minor handling wear at foot of spine. Size: Landscape Folio over 12" - 15" Wide. Bookseller Inventory # P25123
