About this item

Photography in Southeast Asia comprehensively follows the emergence and evolution of photographic practices in Southeast Asia. Beginning in the colonial era, when the transfer of photographic technology occurred between visiting practitioners and local photographers, Zhuang Wubin follows the history of Southeast Asian photography up to the present day.
Illustrated with two hundred photographs, the book includes individual chapters dedicated to the countries of Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam that focus on photographers who demonstrate an autonomous artistic vision. Wubin also reexamines the relationship between art and photography and uses photography as an entry point into the discussion of cultural and social practices of the region. Accessible and visually engaging, this book will be valuable to both casual and serious readers with an interest in the region’s art and culture.
