Hidden Track

These photos, either of casual capturing of episodes of quotidian life or of poses, call forth an

“unconventional” sense that is different from the everyday life routine. Such sense of the

unconventional or even uncanny everyday life is particular to this generation or this group of

generation, a kind of sense of imaginary existential beauty. They play houses in their

everyday lives, building on their own a stage-like private secret and virtual vacuum with

neither the bond of traditional moral standard and customs, nor high-spirited social

atmosphere, in which their love, sex, sorrow and happiness are streaming unrestrained

through their self-directed and self-performed play of life for self-entertainment.
