Ebb and Flow by Qin Yuhai

‘Ebb and Flow’ is an innovative photographic exhibition by renowned Chinese photographer, Mr Qin Yuhai, debuting in the UK in London at Saatchi Gallery from 11 to 15 June 2014. Presented by Fuhai Culture Development Ltd, an organisation engaged in art and culture based in the centre of Beijing, the exhibition features a world exclusive of new studies of water taken from the Chinese landscape over a period of many years.

All the images are based on Qin Yuhai’s long engagement and relationship with Mount Yuntai in Central China’s Henan Province. The photographs, taken with a 10 x 8 camera, are the result of years of learning and understanding how best to represent the essence of water. At the same time, they are an exploration of the nature and language of photography.

Media event: 11 June from 16:00-18:00.

Invitation-only private viewing: 11 June from 18:30-21:00.
