How Solange Brand and her camera saw the Cultural Revolution, exhibition at Robert Klein Gallery

Solange Brand was only 19 when she arrived at the French Embassy in Beijing to work as a secretary. It was November 1965. Stopping in Hong Kong on the way, she had bought a Pentax camera and color slides.

Rumblings of the rising Cultural Revolution began the following spring, and Brand recorded what she saw: young members of the Red Guard; masses demonstrating in the streets; propaganda on towering posters and in street theater.

The pictures she snapped are on view in “Solange Brand: China’s Cultural Revolution, 1966” at Robert Klein Gallery at Ars Libri. Later this year, Ars Libri will publish a portfolio of original prints of selected photographs.
