Rian Dundon "Fan"
“What’s especially striking about Dundon’s series is that it documents the success of a huge, highly manipulated campaign to create an idol for China’s citizens; it records the molding of a figure to such a level of fame that Fan’s life seems like nothing but a spectacle to be enjoyed by all.” –Claire Voon
