Yuqing Lai Transporting

Transporting is a series of surreal photography which creates the impossible. This project is focusing on the changing of time, death and life. The subject is vintage public transport which has been abandoned by human in the fast changing society. I give them a new power to make them function and put them in a dream-like environment. Though it looks surreal, it mostly reflects on reality.

Hannah Höch have inspired me for the idea of photo montage. And the illustration has been inspired by animators like Miyazaki Hayao and Terry Gilliam. The surreal paintings of Frida Kohla also have great influence on the concept behind the collection.
