Curator: Sandeep Biswas

Ximena’s body of work “ Chinese Dream “ revolves around the vast and rapid modernization in China in the last 3 decades paving way towards an economic development and new social reforms and how it is affecting the people of China.

The images depict a changing world that is trying to cope up with this massive economic and industrial revolution, yet trying hard to preserve its vibrant tradition, culture and architecture creating a visual dichotomy.

This whole new urbanization and industralization has created a vaccum between generations through the fast moving technological advancement and change in the aspirations of the younger people in contrast with their traditional and social structures.

Ximena’s imagery is based on a strong tradition of street photography in technique and composition amalgamated with a context that is contemporary in it’s approach.

The Photographer:

I grew up in Buenos Aires, became a photographer in Europe and I am now living between New York and Brussels. After decades of moving around the world, I feel equally at home in Europe, America or Asia. My life has clearly influenced the way I look at the people around me. I have always lived in big cities with a large floating population, which naturally led me to empathize with them. We all are migrants in different ways, moving around trying to improve our lot in life, as it has been since the beginning of times. I try to capture this human dynamic in my photography, made of hopes fulfilled or shattered, with its drama and contradictions. The odyssey of human life.
