Unseen China through the lens of British Victorian and 20thC photographers

The cumulative impact of war and revolutions, political turmoil in
the 1960s and now accelerating urban redevelopment means that photographic records of China's past are much rarer than might be thought. Dr Robert Bickers will offer an insight into a Bristol University-based project aimed at locating new collections of historic photographs of China, digitising them and making them freely available online
