Shunzan Fan: Bio
After my graduation in 2006, I went to France and stayed there for two years. I was living underneath a stair at low cost, I was trying to get some work and save some money so not to rely on my family.At that time, I realized life is not easy.On one hand, I was pursuing my dreams; and on the other hand, I have to maintain the realistic life. This series is my experience of reality.
We all have been asked to write an essay “My Dream” when we were in primary school, and the answers were all kinds. to be a scientist, a dream to go to the moon and the Mars, dream to be the teacher, and so on. A few decades later, t a classmates reunion party, houses, cars, children’s international schools, famous limited edition bags were the topics to talk about. We misunderstood desires and dreams. Dream became a unreachable word unnoticeably .
I think the dream is positive energy, it is so moving to make effort for dreams . it is not so important whether the dream can come true or not . dream cannot be waited.
This series of work are all staged pictures . to the black and white images first ,and manually color them . it is such a big conflict between the fairy tale color and facial expression in the pictures ,every ordinary people can find their resonance.
