Since photography was introduced to China about two hundred years ago, it has become the most popular art medium in Chinese art and life. Trends in the country's photography have been shaped by both long-standing Chinese traditions and western influences.  
 
This full-day symposium will feature scholars, industry experts, photography collectors, and artists from both the U.S. and China, with topics ranging from the influence of Chinese traditional aesthetics on nineteenth century Chinese photography to the cutting-edge innovations developed by the country's contemporary masters of the medium.
