These photographs, made by Jan Serr in China, illustrate her concern for color and composition. She is as confident behind a camera as she is in front of a canvas or a lithographic stone. Known for her paintings, prints, and drawings, Serr has made photographs throughout her career, using a wide range of cameras from a 4×5” sheet-loaded Toyo to a 400 mm Nikon single-lens reflex. Previously working in India, a country with a language and geography she did not know, Serr decided she would be a “street photographer,” shooting raw digital images with a small hand-held camera.

“I needed to be fast, safe, and inconspicuous, whether I was working on Nanjing Road, on the Bund in Shanghai, or off a pagoda’s balcony in the countryside. My circumstances determined the type of equipment I used and the style of image I made,” says Serr.
