Zhuang Wubin is a writer, curator and artist. As a writer/curator, Zhuang focuses on the photographic practices of Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. He uses the medium as a prism to explore the following trajectories: photography and Chineseness, periodicals and photobooks as sites of historiography, and photography’s entanglements with nationalism and the Cold War. As an artist, Zhuang uses photography and text to visualise the shifting experiences of Chineseness in Southeast Asia. Published by NUS Press, Photography in Southeast Asia: A Survey (2016) is his fourth book. His fifth publication is titled Shifting Currents: Glimpses of a Changing Nation (2018), a commission by the NLB, which features the work of Singaporean photographer Kouo Shang-Wei.
