From the Publisher 
  
Wang photographs normal people encountered in everyday situations in streets, cafes or in their homes. Her subjects are women, men, and children of different ages, professions, and social backgrounds. Each portrait reveals an individual existence, abstracted from environment, culture, and nationality.

Book Description 
  
Close to the Eyes  
  
 
  
The Portraits of Xiao Hui Wang 
  
With texts by Tilman Spengler and Xiao Hui Wang  
  
 
  
Xiao Hui Wang 's portraits are of a rare psychological intensity. A world away from celebrity portraiture, they focus not so much on their subjects 'social or material standing but on their individuality -in particular on their eyes. Close to the Eyes presents seventy of the photographer 's most powerful works, taken during her recent travels in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Commentary written by Xiao Hui Wang sheds light on her art.
