Description

Spanish-born, London-based photographer and conceptual artist Cristina de Middel (born 1975) follows the colossal success of her 2012 volume "The Afronauts"--a self-publishing phenomenon that was voted best photo book of that year by Photo-eye--with "Party," a portrait of present-day China modeled on Mao Tsetong's "Red Book." De Middel uses the structure of Mao's book (as well as its iconic design) to create a photo-narrative interspersed with adapted quotations from Mao. As she describes it: "I decided to adapt this historic political statement by censoring and hiding the parts of the text that are no longer in force and highlighting some other redesigned sentences that, for me, form a more accurate portrait of the People's Republic of China in the twenty-first century." "Party" is published in a limited edition of 750 copies and is certain to quickly become a photo-book classic.
