The Door Opened: 1980s China
One can argue that nostalgia is the strongest emotion, a pure mixture of wistfulness and melancholy. Adrian Bradshaw, an English photographer, brings that sense of yearning into full focus in this exhibition presented by the Confucius Institute at The University of Manchester. Featuring a blend of candid and posed photographs which explore China in the 1980’s; from opulent fashion extravaganzas to sentimental family excursions, Bradshaw captures the fleeting beauty and simplicity of everyday life.
