In “Some Days”, Wang has created a series of photographs with a mood that is instantly recognizable as his. This mood incorporates nostalgia, memory and dreams. One of the essential elements in Wang Ningde’s photographs is the closed eyes, or at least the absence of open eyes. Another element is Mao suit. Though not all the subjects wear Mao suits, not all show eyes that are closed, but all contain essential parts of the dream. Wang Ningde has distilled 20th Century China into its pure elements.
