Gucang Dummy Award 2015 selected by Martin Parr
Sun Yanchu found the photos in the series in antique markets. They were taken in China of 1970s or 80s. He used collaging or drawing to destroy or carry forward the stories in the photos, with his imagination or restoration about the social news in recent years. Maybe the original photos recorded real things which happened, but were the new plots through his changes completely fabricated?
SUN YANCHU was born in 1978 in Zhoukou, Henan Province. Recent awards include: MIO Photo Award (Morumura Yasumasa) Special Award (2010), Lianzhou International Photo Festival New Photography Award (2011), Jinan International Photo Biennale Best Photographer Award (2012), Gucang Dummy Award with the book 'Ficciones' (2015).
