Photographer on the Road: Gu Zheng's Street Photography in Shanghai, 攝影的人, 在路上：顧錚的上海街頭攝影
This book concludes Gu Zheng’s street photography experience. He founded ‘Bei He Meng’, an avant-garde photography group in 1980, and travelled to Japan for cultural exchange in 2006. He is also an well-known photography critic world-wide, who is experienced in writing on photography theories and criticisms.
Street photographers are like ‘idle men’. They consciously observe everyday life that everyone else takes for granted, and wait for the unexpected moment to shoot. This is the first time Gu publishes his thoughts on street photography in Taiwan. In addition to describing the essence of street photography, the book also points out its close linkage and indivisibility with urban development. Street photographers constantly observe changes of the cityscape, from a gray centralized city to a free and colorful one. Along with the increasing number of skyscrapers, street photography also takes a higher angle. Through comparing characters of Shanghai, Kyoto and New York, Gu gives the taste of cities through street photography.
