The internet is influencing and changing everybody’s life. According to Chinese government statistics, internet sales rose 49.7% in 2014, compared to an overall 12% rise in retail sales. 
 
In January 2015, I asked people from all over China, from big cities to small villages, to display everything they’ve ever bought online.  
 
For people living in remote areas, online shopping is a lifeline to the outside world – a way to buy a host of products they can’t otherwise access. In some of China’s more inaccessible places, delivery crews sometimes must abandon their vans to drop off packages on foot. 
 
The series is a testament to the overwhelming popularity of online shopping and how it influences even the most remote communities.  

 

This exhibition is outdoors. Please check what COVID-19 restrictions are in place before you visit.
