Fan Shi San, China b. 1983
"In his ongoing photography series “2 of Us,” Fan Shisan characterizes the effects of China’s one-child policy on the identity formation of young Chinese people. He suggests that the “concept of self” of kids born after 1980 has developed differently compared to that of earlier generations. Noting of his generation, he says he and his peers tend to integrate alter-egos into their lives as a substitute for the siblings they never had."
