Works in Progress, an exhibition at the Museum Folkwang in German city Essen, reviews the latest development of Chinese photography. It displays brand-new works of 24 contemporary Chinese artists and photographers.

The erupting energy of Chinese photography came into the spotlight a dozen years ago. The current exhibition includes artists who have won international recognition, such as Wang Qingsong, Jiang Pengyi and Ma Qiusha. Also it shows creativity of up-and-coming photographers who experiment with conceptual approaches and new technologies.

The photos on show center around dramatic social changes during urbanization, the tension between city areas and countryside and people's attitude towards sex.

The exhibition runs through Sept 13.
