Tang DeSheng presents "Educated Youth" at the Speos Gallery, from November 13 to December 8, 2014.
Opening on November 13 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Tang DeSheng started his career in the army, where he served as a photographer during military service. The following ten years, he photographed "zhiqing" (educated young people), who were sent to live and work in the countryside during the "Up to the Mountain and Down to the Countryside" Movement. The 6 000 photos he took are the only photographic witnesses of this movement, which - after all these years - are finally shown in public.
