Abstract

Photographic Exhibition
The photographic collection of Sir Robert Hart includes more than 2,500 images, almost all accumulated while Hart was Inspector General of the Chinese Imperial Maritime Customs from 1863 to 1908. The collection suggests the influence of two rather different “imperial eyes” surveying China: that of the Chinese Qing Empire, and that of Western powers pursuing their own interests. The photographs in this exhibition illustrate both Chinese and Western visions of China in the last years of the Qing dynasty
