有趣的是,相比土生土长的中国人,那些来自西方国家的摄影师似乎更钟情于记录这座飞速变化中的国家,对于这里一丝一毫的变化,也更加敏锐。美国摄影师Daniel Traub,中文名叶仁杰从1999年开始,试图从拍摄于城市街头和城乡结合部的照片来描摹当代的中国。在一次展览的前言中,他这样形容这个地方:“整个中国的现状可以从这些景观中看到:悬而未决,粗砺和自相矛盾。”

Daniel Traub is an American photographer who divides his time between New York City and Shanghai, China. Since 1999, he has been engaged with long term projects in China including Simplified Characters which explores the transformation of China’s cities through street portraits and urban scenes, and City’s Edge which looks at the border region where urban and rural China meet. More recently, he has been working on a project in Philadelphia, the city where he was born.
