A wall of pinned-up breast enhancers; a champagne bride at a westernized Chinese wedding; and three tiny workers perched atop the domed New Opera House after a devastating sandstorm are just a few of the amazing Sternfeld-esque photographs in this new collection by the British-born documentary photographer, Mark Henley, whose work is regularly featured in Vanity Fair, the Economist, the publications of Amnesty International and the United Nations. Henley has spent much of the past two decades in Asia, concentrating on the economic and social changes that have been sweeping through the continent and beyond. In China [sur]real he portrays the people and processes of Zhongguo, the "Middle Kingdom," in the midst of its greatest transition. Henley captures the country's common humanity, but does not omit the odd edges that make China both part of our world and a world apart.
