When the Peoples' Republic set up its Special Economic Zones in the 1980s communist China entered into global trade and international capital. The goal was financial but new money also brought new values and new ways of life. Polly Braden's photography is an intimate response to the material and psychological effects of the changes experienced by the country's new urban class. Shot over three years in Shanghai, Xiamen, Shenzhen and Kunming, "China Between" is a revelatory portrait. No longer will images of epic scenes dominate our view of this country. Braden shows how a casual glance, a moment of doubt or a quick trip to the shopping mall can tell us as much about modern China as any image of a dam, a protest or a teeming workforce.
