Zhang Xiaogang Bloodline Series, this work comments on the Cultural Revolution which occurred in China between 1966 and 1976, in particular referencing greyscale family photos in a classic studio setting.

Also inspired by Western surrealism, Zhang Xiaogang engages with concepts of identity within an Eastern culture of collectivism. The anonymous figures are suggestive of multiple generations merging into one formulaic identity, with a bright burst of colour interrupting the monochrome and breaking the trend.
