During his more than 20-year career, the Chinese photographer and artist Sun Hongbin has felt attracted by the curious drawings and landscapes described in the classical poems and the novels on popular spirits in his country. As if he were somehow incited by these errant souls, he decided to go out and snatch them with his camera at night. Thus emerged his series Mirage in the Dust, a compilation of photographs taken in heavily polluted places and in the midst of sandstorms. The poor environmental conditions which are constant feature in the city of Beijing serve as the backdrop where Hongbin manages to capture these mysterious and almost phantasmagorical images.
