Cecilie Fang: 中国梦 Zhong Guo Meng

Copenhagen, Denmark


Three characters that seem so innocent, idyllic and promising: 中国梦Zhong Guo Meng. 

The Chinese Dream. A promise about development, unity and reformation – and yet sometimes promises are not enough.

Cecilie Fang is one of our local friends in Copenhagen, who recently started photographing. While living in China from 2018 to 2020, Cecilie captured a sense of powerlessness. A feeling that mainly came from herself. A feeling that was reflected in her surroundings. It was a void and a sense that were not fulfilled by the promise of development, unity and reformation. Cecilie is reflecting this feeling of emptiness and restlessness in the following b/w photographs which we hope you will enjoy as much as we do.
