Published in partnership with the Jumièges Abbey and Doors on the occasion of the exhibition of the same title, “Flowing Waters Never Return to the Source. Photographers Gazing at the River in China” centres upon the Chinese river, a seminal theme in contemporary photography in China, as seen through the eyes of thirteen visual artists.

From the re-appropriation of traditional Chinese painting where idealized landscapes seem suspended in time (“mountain-water”) to the accelerated modernization of the country and its consequences for nature and the environment, and visual narratives using its evocative power, the river has formed a recurring motif of inspiration for photographers in China over the past twenty years – whether Chinese or otherwise.

Artists: Yang Yongliang, Sui Taca, Luo Dan, Michael Cherney, Edward Burtynsky, Zhuang Hui, Chen Qiulin, Mu Ge, Liu Ke, Jia Zhangke, Zhang Xiao, Chen Ronghui, Zhang Kechun.
