In partnership with Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture, Willoughby City Council presents an exhibition of photography by David Cubby to celebrate Lunar New Year 2020.  David Cubby’s photographs feature ordinary people from all corners of China, and document the recent historical shift of people migrating from the village to the metropolis.  Photographing through a time of hyper-rapid industrialisation that shapes modern China, the photographed, photographer and viewer are drawn into a zone of inquiry concerning everyday people, those left in villages and those working feverishly around the edge and within the metropolis.

Surveillance is intervention. Photographing is not for practitioners to intervene in community, but to approach people observantly with kindness and equanimity, being at home in unfamiliar places. Ultimately, it is being at ease with amazing people living out their modernity in dignity whilst maintaining tradition as an enormous resource
