Political Chaos
Paul Kooiker
Publisher: Études Books
ISBN: 9782369820006

In 2006, Dutch photographer Paul Kooiker spent three months as an artist in residence in the chinese coastal city of Xiamen. Impressed by the pace of China’s economic development, Kooiker imagined a series of sea photographs where he is capturing isolated swimmers, floating in oblivion. By focusing on the consequences of the political and economic development rather than showing it, Kooiker delivers a strong series of photographs.
