Three Gorges: Michael Hoppen Gallery

"When Ken Griffiths’ exhibition ‘Three Gorges’ opened on 1st September 2005 the world he captured had vanished under billions of cubic meters of water. Griffiths’ photographs of the Three Gorges Dam – China’s largest building project since the Great Wall, depict a lost landscape and the emergence of a new one, and evoke the imagery of traditional Chinese landscape painting. Each photograph is produced by the digital melding of a dozen images creating sweeping panoramic views that translate the restraint and meditative quality of Chinese art into the 21st century. "
