“Inspired by my family snapshots, these photographs are taken from a project that explores recreational spaces found in China. In 1958, at the beginning of The Great Leap Forward, when private ownership was banned, many existing parks were renovated and new parks were built all across China, many were renamed People’s Parks. Over the years, they became main focal points of cities, where families have outings and couples meet.”
