Introduce a Chinese photographer: Yang Yankang

There is an interview of Christian Caujolle, the ex-founder of Agence VU, on The Outlook Magazien (China). He mentioned a few Chinese photographers who are signed with Agence VU. Therefore, this agency gets my attention.

Yang Yankang (born.1954)’s photographs remind me Zhuang Xueben, who taken photographs of Chinese “minorities” between 1930s and 1950s. There are two series of Yang’s work, showing on Agence VU’s website: Buddhism in Tibet (2009) and Catholic in the Villages of Shanxi Province, China (2001). Yang has anthropological eyes as Zhuang Xueben, chasing the people who live with their own lifestyle and culture (religious).
