Impressions of China by Bernardo and Tomas Medina

Bernardo and Tomas Medina are a father-and-son team based in Houston, Texas, whose photographs have been featured in such publications as National Geographic and Smithsonian Magazine.

In their words:

Photographs contain no more or no less truth than a painting or a written a work of fiction. Photography allows us to play with the perception of the outside world, its structures, forms, illusions, and cliches…

Featured here are their photographs from both urban and rural China, presenting two vastly different sides of the Chinese experience.
