Behind the Great Wall’ is a photo documentary on my travels in China in 1999.
Photographer Willem Wernsen (1954), known amongst others from ‘Fotofestival Naarden 2013 ‘,
has been invited by ‘The Photographic Society of Confucius Hometown’ in China to exhibit some
of his photographs for 1 month, November 2014, during the Photo Biennale in Jinan, Shandong.
On the occasion of this exhibition, the foundation ‘Stichting Willem Wernsen Fotografie’,
decided to publish a large number of photographs from this photographic travelogue in a book, with
the title ‘Behind the Great Wall’. Some of these photographs belong now to the permanent collection
of the Shandong Art Museum in Jinan, China.
Wang Ruiqing, a Chinese painter, commented on Willem’s photos: “He saw China from the perspective
of a Westerner, and took photos of China with his heart.” When many Western photographers shot the “others”
in China, Willem shot “me” and “us” there.
