Documenting China: Being a Professional Photographer in the Middle Kingdom
Speaker(s): Ryan Pyle
Chair: Dr Bingchun Meng
Recorded on 24 February 2011 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.
Canadian born, award winning, documentary photographer Ryan Pyle first visited China in 2001. After a 3 month trip around the country he was hooked. He has never left since. It was very much Ryan's first trip to China that inspired him to enter the discipline of photography, and since then his imagery has graced the pages of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Time, Newsweek, Fortune, The Sunday Times Magazine and the Financial Times Magazine. Ryan will visit the LSE to speak about his work, his career to date and what it is like working in China for the world's leading publications. Dr Bingchun Meng is a Lecturer in the department of Media and Communications at LSE.
