Zhejiang Photographic Press, now a state-owned publishing company, was found in 1984. Since the establishment, we have been focusing on publishing photography history, essays, monographs and how-to books. We are passionate and determined to make the art and technique of photography accessible to a broad reading public in China. We also publish photographic illustrated books on a wide range of fields including travel, collection, art, design and Chinese culture. For over 30 years, Zhejiang Photographic Press has been recognized as an esteemed publisher of high quality photography books.
We have established good business relationships with international publishing companies and organizations including Thames & Hudson, Phaidon, MoMA Publications, Aperture Foundation, Little Brown and Company, Gallimard, Flammarion, DK, Ilex Press, Laurence King, Carlton Books and Quarto Publishing Group. A great deal of translation rights has been traded, and most of the trades turned out to be prosperous. For instance, Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs and How to Read a Photograph, each title has sold over10,000 copies which is a remarkable success in the Chinese book market.
We also work with distinguished Chinese authors, artists and photographers to produce books of high standards. For instance, The Dictionary of Photography which was listed as a key project of National Book Publishing Program, is still the most comprehensive reference book ever compiled by Chinese authors. Books published by Zhejiang Photographic Press have earned their reputation for high quality among the Chinese readers.
In 2009, Zhejiang Photographic Press was certified as a first class publishing house, aka the 'Top 100 Publishing Houses in China', by the General Administration of Press and Publication, the supervisor of the Chinese publishing industry. Among the 100 publishing houses, we are the only one who specialized in publishing photography books.
Today, we publish approximately 50 new photography titles each year and has a current backlist of over 1,000 titles. Our photography list goes from strength to strength, showcasing the greatest photographers and their work. We will continue to provide readers with high quality books as always, and we hope our books will help you see the world in a new light which is exactly the idea behind our publishing program.
