Xu Yong – Negatives
These photographic negatives were taken 25 years ago, during the muchcensored Tiananmen Square Protests in Beijing, China, June 4, 1989. In traditional photography, the negative image is the most direct way of capturing an analogue image through photochemistry; it is the basis of a traditional photograph. At the moment the negative image is being formed, it cannot be immediately viewed by the photographer. To really understand the photograph‘s entire message, the image must be completed through the powerful development process of the darkroom. Instructions for viewing the negatives as positive images: To interact with the works in Negatives with your iPhone or iPad, go to “Settings” “General” “Accessibility” and turn on “Invert Colors”. Then use the camera to reveal the positive images of the negative works. Other devices have similar functions, such as camera setting “Color Effect – Negative”.
