Essays by Geremie R. Barmé and Lois Conner.
"Lois Conner's vision of China, a landscape borrowed in her photographs, is one that itself has evolved over nearly two decades. Through her eye and her art these images, like the unfolding scroll paintings of Chinese scholar art, reflect the myriad aspects of her travels and fascinations, her obsessions and her observations. Yet Conner is not a casual photographer who has "done" China as part of an itinerary of sightseeing, or on photographic assignment to capture some ephemeral but newsworthy event. She was captivated by the art and poetry of that country long before she saw its landscape for the first time."
