Zhou Pinglang is a photographer and photojournalist holding a BA in Philosophy from Fudan University in Shanghai and a MA in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism from the London College of Communication. Over the last decade, Pinglang has travelled across China to work on independent projects and cover stories for various news media outlets. His best-known photographic series, Hu Line (2015-2017), covers how an imaginary line across China divides the country, marking a vast difference in topography, environment, demography, and politics. Zhou Pinglang’s work has been exhibited worldwide, including at the Dunedin Fine Art Center in Florida, the Museum of London, Photoville in New York, and the Shanghai International Photography Festival, and he has received major awards such as the Asian Environmental Journalism Award and the SOPA for Editorial Excellence, among others.

For this exhibition, Zhou Pinglang has contributed photographs selected from a variety of projects. From giant expo halls filled with security guards awaiting command, to debutantes enjoying English afternoon tea in a Shanghai villa. The featured photographs from Pinglang offer a glimpse into different everyday lives from different classes by embracing the universal aspects of living in a modern society. Through the visualization of everyday phenomena, Zhou Pinglang strives to provoke awareness of societal issues, thereby giving rise to a deeper collective consciousness of a more nuanced society.
