Sun Kai Qiang documents the architecture and it’s serene aura of her university in Shanghai. Her photographic series, with a minimalistic approach titled “School Selfie”, evolves out of a project for her studies which gives us a glimpse into the “China Academy of Art” in Shanghai.
Long corridors, double-height rooms and atria sometimes traversed by one or two, maybe three passersby or students. Conspicuous is that she never or rarely shows faces when she takes close-up’s. The faces of her characters are hidden behind books or walls.
We can’t get enough of her minimalistic photographs.
