Statement by Photographer Zhang Xiao:
This is not a real world, though I like them. In a moment, they surpass themselves in reality just like sleepwalking. I seldom talked to them when I shot them, or only made eye contacts with them. Most of the time, I pressed the shutter quickly, with the dazzling flash shooting at right angles. When they awoke and stared at me, I already left in a hurry, because I didn’t dare to look into their eyes. I escaped, just like escaping from myself in the mirror.

张晓自述:
这是个并不真实的世界,我喜欢他们。他们在某个时刻的状态已经超越了现实的自己,像是在梦游。我拍照片时很少和他们对话,只是眼神的交流,更多的时候是迅速按下快门,快门声伴随着刺眼的闪光灯直射过去,他们这才如梦初醒地诧异地看着我,等他们回过神来,我已经匆匆离开。因为他们的眼神很多是我所不敢面对的。我像是在逃避,正如逃避镜子中的我自己。
