An exhibition exploring photographic family portraits and the family album. Featuring work from the National Portrait Gallery Collection, and new work by Chinese families from across the UK.
Traditionally the family has been the most important unit in Chinese society and culture, and in China this is often still true. But what about Chinese families living in Britain? How have their family values been integrated into, or influenced by, British culture? In Cherish: Chinese Families in Britain Chinese families from London, Manchester and Glasgow have worked with three professional photographers to explore these themes.
