This is the starting point of our project : to install during two days a fairground photographic studio in the box of the Bazaar Compatible Program.

Photography as play, fun, pretext for meetings and as a language, finally. One that would allow us to communicate here, we who do not speak Chinese.

Playing with the codes of vernacular photography and those of commercial one, the images of The Magnifique Studio will take the energies that run in the bazaar. Everyone and everything can be photographed: merchants, customers, bystanders, goods, objects, animals, fruits, colors, plants ...

This is the spirit of place that will unveil our photos, or at least what we perceive of it.
