Shi Yangkun:

From“Solastalgis” to “Retrotopia”


SCoP invited Shi Yangkun, one of the photographers in the current exhibition “Social Geography: Ten Journeys with a Camera”, to hold a wonderful lecture from “Solastalgis” to “Retrotopia”. He explained the relation between utopian landscapes and social reality, through those images of nostalgic scenery, silent portraits and symbolic subjects. Besides, he also retraced his hometown in the series “Solastalgis” and shared his special feeling of homesickness.
