Abstract

In 2004, noticing the scale of the demolition, displacement and relocation of the Three Gorges Project, Chinese photographer Mu Ge started to focus on the living conditions of ordinary people in the Three Gorges region. His photographic series Going Home was nominated for the Foam Paul Huf Award in 2011 and selected as a Juror’s Pick for the 2012 Daylight Photo Awards. Since 2013, he has been working on Behind the Wall, a new series that takes the destruction of the environment and the people’s survival situation under the background of mass urbanization and industrialization in northern China as the main concern. Mu Ge’s work has been shown in many exhibitions.
