“Family Possessions”: Living environments of ordinary Chinese families

The “Family Possessions” photography project was jointly produced by Huang Qingjun and Ma Hongjie. From 2005, they started shooting some families and the household items they use daily. In the course of their work, they countered many difficulties and challenges, as every family needed them to repeatedly explain the purpose of their photography, to establish a foundation of trust, before the photographers themselves would then arrange the objects to be photographed.

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
