Poster of Here’s Looking at You! – A Generation of Chinese Photographic Portraits before Selfie

“Here’s Looking at You” takes as its subject the self in photographs as a vehicle for examining the diverse ways in which people choose to be photographed, and how the ways in which we see ourselves have (or haven’t) changed from the 1980s to today.

How we chooses to look at or see ourselves as the subject of a photographic portrait is a complex act. The diverse, often humorous portraits presented in “Here’s Looking at You” highlight the ways in which this complexity unfolds and how deeply our delight in self-images is rooted.
