"The photographer found the photos in the series in antique markets. They were taken in China of 1970s or 80s. He used collaging or drawing to destroy or carry forward the stories in the photos, with his imagination or restoration about the social news in recent years. Maybe the original photos recorded real things which happened, but were the new plots through his changes completely fabricated?" (publisher's note)

About the photographer (*1978 in Zhoukou, Henan):
Sun Yanchu lives and works in Zhengzhou. He won MIO Photo Award (Morumura Yasumasa) Special Award in 2010, won Lianzhou International Photo Festival New Photography Award in 2011, won Jinan International Photo Biennale The Best Photographer Award in 2012.

Bemalte Fotografien gibt es hin und wieder auch im Fotobuch. Erinnert sei an Gerhard Richters 'Übermalte Fotografien' oder Bände von Boris Mihkailov und weiteren ukrainischen Fotografen. Was dieses Buch aus meiner Sicht so interessant macht, ist das Objekt-hafte, das mit den übermalten Fotos aus den 70er und 80er Jahren einhergeht.
