“This is not a real world, though I like them. In a moment they surpass themselves in realist just like sleepwalking. I seldom talked to them when I shot them, or only made eye contact 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 had left, in a hurry because I didn’t dare look into their eyes. I escaped, just like escaping from myself in the mirror.” – Zhang Xiao.
