'Early Works presents Chinese photographer Han Lei’s black and white photography from the 1980s and ‘90s.
Han Lei began taking documentary-style photographs in the 80s, focusing on everyday life and street scenes in and around his hometown of Kaifeng. The photographs in the photobook astonish in several ways. First, there’s Han Lei’s mastery as a photographer: his work preserves a bygone China, and it does so with such clarity and simplicity that they elicit a strange sense of nostalgia. Further, Han Lei possesses a gift for the “decisive moment,” for framing single shots that manage to reveal a larger truth or tell fragments of a greater story.' - excerpted from the Publisher's website.
