Hu Yuanli, Guangzhou, 1989

Zhang Haier (b. 1957, Guangzhou, Guangdong province, China) graduated from Shanghai Theatre Academy in 1982. Zhang was among the earliest photographers to develop a distinct, independent and experimental approach to documentary photography in the late 1980s and early 1990s in China. In searching for new documentary subjects, he turned his lens towards the city, photographing the changing urban landscape and lifestyles of Guangzhou and other metropolises. In 1988, Zhang was one of the first-ever Chinese photographers to be exhibited internationally at les Rencontres d’Arles, a much-historicised moment that marked the beginning of global exposure and recognition of Chinese photography.
