Award winning photographer Polly Braden has a new exhibition, entitled ‘A Decade in China’ opening in London today. Her pictures are an intimate glimpse of people living and working in a country balancing between change and tradition. I love them because apart from being beautifully photographed, they are a revealing study on contemporary Chinese culture.
