Year: 2017

Born in Changsha, Hunan province, Peng Ke moved with her parents to Shenzhen as a young child. She is interested in how urbanization and migration affect the human psyche, particularly in young children. Through her photography, Peng seeks to understand how migrant children growing up in unfamiliar cities approach their surroundings, and how they come to know unfamiliar and chaotic worlds through play.
