United Nude originates from collaboration: A Dutch architect and an English shoemaker started a brand and shook up the world. In the process of their partnership they have worked with editors and writers on magazine concepts, with industrial designers on furniture and car design, with fashion designers, with other brands, with photographers, manufacturers, and curators: collaboration continues to be at the heart and soul of United Nude’s existence.
Being well connected within China’s creative industries, the 5PRCITY photo project was initiated with a selection of China’s leading photographers.
The simple theme “Women and the City” in China’s 5 main cities.
Yiki Liu (Shanghai), Pingshen (Shanghai), 223 (Beijing), Song Liu (Beijing), Qiu (Guangzhou), GT (Guangzhou), Quist (Hong Kong) and Baichuan (Chengdu).
Their pictures together form a time-capsule of the China of today.
Architecture, people, tradition and sexuality.
The 5PRCITY project was seen in a travelling exhibition that started at the 1918 Art Space Gallery in Shanghai from August 6th – 12th and was accompanied by a 5PRCITY limited edition book (500 copies only).
