Day Dreamers: Eric Leleu Peaceful Series About Shanghai People Napping In Public

‘I started the ‘Day Dreamers’ series unconsciously. After a year or so of living in China, I realized in looking at my archives that I had taken quite a few photographs of people napping on the streets without really being aware of it. So I decided to delve deeper into this topic and kept on shooting them continuously for a rather long period of time (4 or 5 years) to the point it became a true obsession. I did not hunt for those images; they came to me spontaneously in between point A and B. I like the simplicity of those people doing something private publicly. I like also the idea of showing another side of China, unseen, unexpected, a soft and tender aspect.’ – Eric Leleu
