All the photos in “A flower is not a flower” have been placed in a rather heavy looking black folder. Most are not bound, apart from a very particular set that has been made into a blue velvet booklet.

These images are more like a sculpture installation, precise and exact in size. Zhang’s photos are clearly defined and absolute. The format allows viewers to make their own sequence. By arranging single and double sided images, the viewer can have an infinite amount of interpretations by playing with the order and alignment of the images.

Surprisingly, the book also comes with a random object that has been hand selected by the author, alongside a photo of said object. The author seems to want to question the reality of the photo.

Did the object in your hand ever really exist in that photo?
