Life can be uninspiring sometimes. The same things happen over and over again, and even though we are kept busy everyday, nothing actually ever seems to happen. Is it our lives, or is it just us?

Perhaps there is a different way of looking at things. Perhaps there is beauty hidden in every moment. Perhaps ordinary is extraordinary. Perhaps there is poetry where we least expect it: in everyday life. And so, through the lens and stories of photography, we ask: how can photography reframe our view of everyday life?

Featured stories:

Seeing Things In A Different Light
Jiaxi and Zhe talk about their series “The Architecture of Still Life”, where they discover beauty in everyday surroundings, by taking objects out of their natural habitats to see what kind of spaces they create in a photograph.

What We Touch, Touches Us
Ting Cheng shares the story behind Baker Salon, a workshop that was born out of a craving for home-cooked food, which turned into a space where people can gather and interact with each other through baking, braiding and finally photography.

Everyday Strategies Against Mundanity
Yu Tong Lai proposes a simple five-step guide to counter mundanity in our everyday lives.

Everything is Equal Inside The Frame
Yang Yanyuan talks about her photography series “Same”, where the value, colour, shape and function of everyday objects are disregarded and simplified inside the camera frame.

The Shrouded World
Wu Shankun talks about how he came to create the series “Innocent Youth”, in an attempt to recreate the fragments of his memory as his memories began to blur. It was during this process that he became aware of the relationship between people and their everyday environments


日常非日常

有時候生活平淡無奇,
相同的事情發生了一遍又一遍,
每一天,我們看似忙忙碌碌,
但事實上,似乎什麽都未曾發生,
這是因為生活,
還是因為我們自己?

也許有另外一種方式來觀看事物,
也許每一個時刻裏都有美的秘密,
也許平凡亦是非凡,
也許日常中最微小的部分裏也有詩意。

那些鏡頭另一端的影像故事,即將發生:
攝影,要如何重塑我們的日常?
