Ballet Story

Photographed by Han Yang

A project inspired by the Black Swan theory. Like the current epidemic, the impact is beyond people's imagination. At the beginning of the project, we envisioned the use of some strongly contrasting elements to reflect the fragility and romance of the outside, and the strength and struggle of the inside. But finally, we used a romantic flower setting to cover the inner tension and tragic reality, it is “the sugar coating of reality". And the appearance of crows symbolically makes the emergence of the epidemic more like a preordained fable. A story photographed by Han Yang.
