La Galerie Paris 1839 is delighted to present the collection Three Gorges by Zeng Nian, a Chinese photographer who works in France.
The Three Gorges series gave Zeng Nian an international reputation as the witness of the culture, the history and the great changes of China. The Three Gorges series is named after the Three Gorges Dam, which is the world’s largest hydraulic dam located in the province of Hubei in the heart of China. The choice of a wide-angle, panoramic 6:17 format in his series Three Gorges projects a certain sadness, a sense of melancholy that matches the disappearance of the Three Gorges. Allowing us to enter the space and moment of the past, Zeng’s works are indeed a true experience to the old China.
