> DESCRIPTION

Model Opera features a suite of images by Chinese photographer Zhang Yaxin that vividly record the actors and scenery of the Communist Party-sanctioned “model operas” staged during the latter part of the Cultural Revolution. Yaxin, who also served as chief photographer of the Communist Party leaders, devoted eight years of his life to photographing the operas, which assembled China’s best playwrights and performers. His photographs were disseminated extensively within China on posters, stamps and craftworks. Facilitated by Helga Pakasaar.
