In the exhibition ‘Chinese Journey’, the Rotterdam-based photographer Eli Dijkers takes the viewer on a journey through China. Dijkers is fascinated by this ‘Land of the Dragon’ that is undergoing such a fast transition that it seems to have changed with every visit. The photographer is an eager observer and nothing seems to escape his attention. On his journeys through Shanghai and Fujian he pays considerable attention to capturing his surroundings as well as people and animals. Dijkers’s images show a photographer in transit; often with a poetic gaze and always driven by an eager passion. 

Kunsthal 10 March - 19 August 2018.
