Xing Danwen :: Urban Fiction

The architectural structures that I photographed are all maquettes made to promote real-estate developments that are being planned in China today. Some of the buildings already exist, and others will soon begin construction [...]

The models of these new living spaces are perfect and clean and beautiful but they are also so empty and detached of human drama. When you take these models and begin to add real life--even a single drop of it--so much changes.

This entire body of work is playful and fictitious, wandering between reality and fantasy. All the figures in this series are images of me, playing different characters.
