Guizhou, Winter 1990
My aunt took these photos in a small village

Stockholm, Winter 2015… I opened the yellowed album

The people  in the photos look like living in the Peach-Blossom Source, as described in this poem:

“The land was flat and spacious.There were houses arranged in good order with fertile fields, beautiful ponds, bamboo groves, mulberry trees and paths crisscrossing the fields in all directions. The crowing of cocks and the barking of dogs were within everyone’s earshot.

In the fields the villagers were busy with farm work. Men and women were dressed like people outside. They all, old and young, appeared happy.”

25 years later, 9000 miles away

I put on their costumes to shoot these photos

When I was walking in the snow, I felt like jumping into the cracks of time

a feeling of  travelling to another time and place

(a project for Stefania Seoni)
