    Squares is a series of non-existent urban places. I created fake aerial photos and city vertigos by sequencing the same section of sidewalks and meticulously assembling collections of people....The Squares series was a perspective study that I completed quite a few years ago. I started to work on it Shanghai when I got interested in depicting people in infinite spaces taking them out from their personal surroundings, and studying existence in general. I was working on several series at the time, seeking to find out more about this topic. Each Square is a made-up world. They don’t exist in reality. I took pictures from pedestrian bridges of people below one by one and then I put the photos together. Sure it meant solving technical issues, like how to make it look real and how to stay true to the perspective literally. This rather meditative “one-by-one” way of putting the Squares together however also gave me the freedom to give each Square its own dynamism.     Squares is a series of non-existent urban places.
