What is the state of contemporary visual storytelling and visual journalism in China?
In this event, we will be speaking with Yan Cong, Beimeng Fu, and Ye Charlotte Ming, publishers of “Far & Near” a Substack newsletter “highlighting visual storytelling from China, through Chinese eyes.”
Yan, Beimeng, and Charlotte will present new work from Chinese image-makers and discuss the trends in Chinese visual storytelling and visual journalism to highlight the newsletter’s mission: making Chinese visual storytellers’ work accessible to a global audience and challenging media stereotypes of China. They will also speak about the role of visuals on social media when traditional media is heavily censored.
