Family Stuff, photos by Huang Qingjun and Ma Hongjie. Beijing.
I love these. Is there a site for them?
Man, these are so cool. I would love to see someone living in the Western World do this…let’s just say you’d def need a wide angled lense.
dave, jeff, all: check out “material world: a global family portrait”. your local library may have a copy.
oh, here’s a taste: http://simplythatsillygirl.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/mosaic5208833.jpg
Peter Menzel did this in the early 90s with families from all over the world in a book called Material World. It was amazing to see a portrait of an American family with all of their things next to a photo like one of these. He also did a book called Hungry Planet which did the same thing but with food. Love the color palate of these.
I was thinking the same thing as Dave who commented before me. Imagine how long it would take to put all the items in your home onto your front yard..crazy! These photos are awesome
These are very interesting photos. I’ve once posted a similar article called “China’s 56 Ethnic Groups” The photos reveal the traditional clothing of the groups in China. Check it out if you fancy http://creativeroots.org/?p=5412
those photos are great! what an incredible experience that project must have been!
it reflect the down stairs of china.. it impressed me .
it is the real china
most of them don’t have kids. that is why they don’t need much stuff…
did you see the price they charge for the prints?
Love the colours of these.
these are very nice photos..congrats Huang…

it’s a good idea, altough not a new one. The German Peter Minzel did exactly the same thing, about six years ago. -> http://www.amazon.de/So-lebt-Mensch-Peter-Menzel/dp/3570190633
