Beijing Through Sidney Gamble's Camera 一百年前的北京社会–西德尼·甘博摄影图片展

Sidney D. Gamble: His Life and Work

Sidney Gamble’s photography of China, shot over three trips between 1917 and 1932, represents an extraordinary contribution to the visual archive for an important period in Chinese history from which few images survive today. As an amateur photographer and trained sociologist, Gamble worked as secretary for the Beijing YMCA, helping to coordinate educational and social reform projects. Through the access these activities granted him to wide ranging elements of Chinese society, Gamble built a deep relationship with China and its people, an closeness reflected in the intimacy of his photographs.
