"Spanning 42 metre length, The History of Monuments is a stunning interpretation of the history of mankind in a photo epic. Mobilising over 200 hundreds models, the renowned Chinese contemporary photographer Wang Qing Song built studio with life size props over weeks to execute this laborious photography work. Well known for his compelling works that convey an ironic vision of 21st-century China’s encounter with global consumer culture, The History of Monuments is a highlight not to miss." from Anzenberger Gallery website
