Follow_Me: New narratives in contemporary photography, China – Switzerland
“Follow _Me: New Narratives in Contemporary Photography, China – Switzerland” , presented at the Exhibition Hall A and the Hall B of OCAT Shenzhen, shows 10 young photographers from China and Switzerland using the language of photography to build layers of overlapping narrations, and to discuss the similarities and differences between visual narratives and the impact of modern communication.
