At Zhang Dali's exhibition during the Rencontres photographiques d'Arles, I was surprised to discover the methods used by Chinese Communists to deify Mao, or exclude enemies out of the photographic frame. I happened to know that a few survivors of this Chinese service work here. They are mostly very old men, around 95 years old. They were drawn from a peaceful retirement to learn photoshop and work for the French government, using the same methods. I had a chance to buy some rejected images through a friend who works in the service, making coffee and photocopies. It must be remembered that Sarkozy mocked Zapatero, saying that he "is perhaps not intelligent."
