It sounds like somebody's nonsensical rhetoric to me. But in the arts in China, I think it is true that traditionally, being "new" or "different" was less spoken about than being "elegant" or "strange" or "eccentric" (which does come close to a form of heroic individualism I suppose--just not thought of in that kind of rhetoric at all)--or "fierce" or "wild." The aesthetics were different and the moral signatures that accompanied those different standards of beauty were also different.

it makes sense coming from Cartier-Bresson, though. it is more about him than about China, IMO.
