” In a broad sense, all of my works demonstrate a kind of oppression. If conditions allow, parents plan a future that they think will be good for their children. If they are not wealthy enough, they hope their children will have a skill and then they force them to develop it. As children grow up, their character is distorted by the inappropriate pressure of their parents and their schools. The appearances of my figures drift between real people and dolls. While the image is aesthetic, I also want to reinforce the strong sense of distortion. ” – Zhang Peng

” The photographs in this body of work represent an early version of my ongoing interest in psychological portraiture. The images describe potent moments that disrupt our expectations of childhood innocence and simplicity. I am particularly interested in childrenâ€™s â€œplayâ€ and the kind of symbolic meaning that develops from it. ” – Jocelyn Lee

” Over the past 10 years, I have pursued a little-known genre called slitscan photography. Far from being just a visual curiosity, it has become a substantial tool for the exploration of themes meaningful to me. I have found slitscan photography to be an excellent vehicle for ideas central to my work– ideas about time and our place in its continuum. It is important to understand that these images are not manipulated. This is the way my camera sees the world. ” – Ansen Seale
