The Door Opened: 1980s China
September 6, 2019 (Friday)

Event starts at : 18:30

The Door Opened: 1980s China is a powerful record of the golden era of reform, when China and the rest of the world were united in their enthusiasm for better things to come. A youthful population was seizing the possibilities of personal development and experimentation. Into this febrile environment came British photojournalist Adrian Bradshaw who had travelled from London by plane, ship and train in 1984 for a course at the Beijing Languages Institute. From the first day he knew he was photographing the history of a society on the move. In his new book, he turns to his more personal images - most previously unpublished – sharing what he witnessed in the 1980s with humour and empathy. This was the time China began to visibly embrace the possibilities of reform and opening up: from the first fashion shows to the visits of Muhammad Ali and Bernardo Bertolucci; the transition from muddy rural free markets to private businesses and factories.\r\n\r\nMr Bradshaw will share with us his personal experience of a crucial period in the story of China’s rise.
