Contemporary photography from China, Japan, and Korea has garnered much attention recently. Houston’s FotoFest is devoting much of this year’s biennial (opening March 7th) to Chinese photography and will include exhibitions of Korean photography as well. The marketplace for photography from these countries has increased exponentially over the past decade, with more and more high profile galleries in the United States and Europe exhibiting and selling contemporary work by artists from this area of the world. Western photographers working in Asia are also producing great photography, and there is tremendous interest from publishers worldwide. At photo-eye (photoeye.com), you can find many great new books about Chinese, Japanese, and Korean photography released over the last several years.

While Japanese and to a lesser extent Korean photography have been popular
in the United States for many years, Chinese contemporary photography has only recently emerged. The December, 2007 Art Basel: Miami Beach and the twenty-three satellite fairs held in and around Miami were brimming with Chinese photography. The upcoming Summer Olympics hosted in Beijing and the ever-increasing economic and political impact that China

Brian Turner and Bruce Weigl with Michael Silverblatt Wednesday 5 March 2008 7 pm Tickets On Sale Saturday, February 2nd!
“The day of the first moonwalk, my father's college literature professor told his class, ‘Someday they'll send a poet, and we'll find out what it's really like.’ Turner has sent back a dispatch from a place arguably more incomprehensible than the moon—the war in Iraq— and deserves our thanks...” — The New York Times Book Review on Brian Turner’s Here, Bullet
“…Weigl is among few poets, as one writing his way not only back from war from which one doesn’t ever quite return, but forth into the horror and stillness of its aftermath, carrying his dead and the fallen of the other side, and finding grace among their survivors and descendents.”— — Carolyn Forché on Bruce Weigl’s Declension in the Village of Chung Luong
