Reveries: Man Sleeping

Part of my upcoming photo book on Guangzhou, China titled, Reveries. “Reveries” offer a gateway through the subconscious and a journey through a sequence of Reveries as seen through a protagonist in reflection of the past and contemplation for the future of Guangzhou. During a visit to a temple, I noticed a man resting alone under a tree. It was about 3pm, and the harsh Guangzhou sun had cast a shadow of the tree onto a nearby wall. The presence of the tree and the shadow on the wall brings a surreal quality to the image. The image poses questions of what could be perceived as reality during a Reverie.
