Quentin Shih:


In photography as in writing, style is key. Regardless of what one photographs, style determines artistry and how a work sets itself apart. This is precisely what is fascinating in the “giant” photographs on view at the Maison de la Chine (China House) in Paris. Most of them were commissioned by Dior China. In the series The Stranger in the Glass Box, models wearing haute couture and trapped in glass capsules appear in incongruous locations throughout China. “Pop art” photography takes on a surreal dimension through its intrusion into this dream world. This Chinese artist has some of the madness of Guy Bourdin, with scenes reminiscent of the paintings of Edward Hopper, as in the series Shanghai Dreamers. The fifteen very large format photos call attention to the singularity and strange beauty of this work on images and light.
