Dealer Notes
During her stay in the Republic of China, Thorbecke created a unique photo series of portraits and street scenes in the Chinese countryside and the cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong to illustrate her newspaper articles. The photos were published in books, for which she also wrote the texts. "With her modernly conceived reports on China, Ellen Thorbecke occupies a unique place in the genre of ethnographic photography"
