They

2006-2009

Them, the citizens, the workers…… Each one of them has their own ordinary life, working 9 to 5, taking vacations, feeding their kids……. They’ve been watching their homeland undergo a great change in the last 30 years. Now they have to face the old traditions and customs and the effects on their lifestyles’ of the rapid development of the economy. No matter good or not there’s a struggle in their hearts between the old traditions and culture, and their life will not like before any more. 

My photos unveil a fantasy world. I am so obsessed about people in the photos who behave like walking in the dream and braving out the rigors of reality. I rarely had a chance to have a conversation with them but eye contact. More often a quick click of the shutter and a dazzling flash awoke them before they could even notice my presence. By the time they realized a photo of them had got captured, I was somewhere else.
