Since my first trip in China (2004) I have been shooting Chinese people having a nap on the streets during the day. Over the months and years, i have been collecting hundreds of them. Here are my favorites. To me, those ‘dreamers’ embodies the blurred inter-relation between private and public space in China. Those ‘dreamers’ photos also show the opposite side of the cliché presenting Chinese people as really hard-working people… This series had been shown in festivals around Asia (Lianzhou, Angkor and Rangoon), published in magazines (VSD in France or Axel Springer in Germany)…
— UPDATE —
I am delighted to let you know the Guardian decided to publish a portfolio about my “Day Dreamers” series both on their website and printed weekend magazine.
