  • Catalogue Essay

    The photographs in the They series result from my work over the past few years. Most of the people in them are close to me. By restaging old photographs and strictly adhering to the way they look (for example the people in them must stay in the same positions), I mean not only to show the changes that have taken place in people and society, over time; even more importantly, I mean to re-create the past, if only in that moment when the shutter snaps. I am enchanted by the fragrance of time. (B. Hai, quoted in Between Past and Future: New Photography and Video from China, H. Wu and C. Phillips, eds., Chicago and New York, 2004, p. 205)
