You can really see the thought Quentin Shih put into these photos. “I had to shoot the Dior models in Paris,” he says, “so I came up with the idea of putting them into a glass box. The glass divides the room into two worlds – one for Dior models and one for Chinese people – both finding each other mysterious and strange. But they can’t communicate with each other through the glass. So I named the series The Stranger in the Glass Box.”
Quentin Shih was awarded “Photographer of the Year” by Esquire magazine in 2007 and will present “The Stranger In The Glass Box” at the Dior & Contemporary Chinese Artists exhibit at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing from November 16th-January 15th, 2009. Very nicely executed Quentin! Love your work!
