Another Self

(2019)

 

ABOUT THE ARTWORK: Another Self is a part of my ongoing project about Nijigen teenagers in China. It is a subculture related to Anime, Comic and Games. This project explored another self-individual in our subconscious. Subconsciously, we have another self-individual. How do we look at and describe ourselves? The true self is hidden in the unconscious, so which one is the real self? The desires and emotions of the ego ultimately make us connect with them.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Tales Yuan is a photographer from China. He focuses on subcultural portraits. He hopes to combine Nijigen portrait photography with conceptual photography and begin to try some forms of contemporary photography.
