Family Stuff by Huang Qingjun
Huang Qingjun is a Chinese photographer, whose insightful visual commentaries allow us to look into the lives of Chinese society. His photographs were widely exhibited in China and abroad. For his project "Family Stuff", Huang spent 10 years taking pictures of 37 families, living in different parts of China. He hoped that this project will direct more light on Chinese families' living standards in different areas, as well as on changes in society. Families and their stuff - silent representation of what's important in their everyday life, how much or how little they have, and the landscape in which their lives go on - all these elements combined make this emotional, amazing project. Huang Qingjun hoped to open a window of China to the world, and he succeeded.
