We are pleased to present Dragon Women: Early Photographs of China during this year’s Asia Week New York, which offers a rare occasion to view some of the earliest photographs of Chinese women, most taken in the 1860s and 1870s. The exhibition explores women’s place in society in the final decades of imperial China, as well as the representation of Chinese women in photography, exposing female attitudes toward the camera in the late Qing dynasty. Also included are rare photographs by the first known Chinese female photographer, Mae Linda Talbot, and works by Hedda Morrison, and Isabella Bird, as well as masterworks by Chinese and international photographers such as Sze Yuan Ming Studio, Pun Lun Studio, A Chan Studio, Lai Fong, and John Thomson, whose Portrait of Three Women in Beijing, circa 1868, is on view. We look forward to welcoming you to our New York location at 10 W. 18th Street, 7th Floor.
