Cupboard Memories by the Chinese photographer Xia Boqian.
Forewords by the Japanese photographer Keiko Nomura, translations in Japanese, Chinese, English.

In Cupboard Memories the Chinese artist Xia Boqian merge together two projects; Out of the closet, where she have covered for a long time people with depression, mental issues due to events and way of life they didn't wanted to share publicly. This project "out of the closet" also covered people suffering of what they are but can't change; lesbians/gays, fat, suicidal, harassed, bullied, etc... For the edit of the book this project has been mixed with other "lighter" secrets; hidden feelings, sentimental affairs, secret love... to make a compilation of private moments with quite improvised stages. What was important during the shooting was to let go and she captured only few pictures of these moments, instantly, without taking care of "professional standard" (lighting, framing,...) She captured the moments.

The emotions frozen in time are much more valuables as during the preparation of the book, a lot of the archives where irremediably lost, leaving us in doubt about using old scans or previous internet sharing. But it was the story of the book itself: a compilation of imperfect things and moments, that cannot be repeated, so we kept going forward.

The sequencing was made using the idea of mutual needs: flowers, waters & human connections responding to each others.

and the woman created the woman

Jean Pierre Joly

Open the cupboard like a "boite de Pandore" and the sensuality arise free. Who can now more on the desire of a young woman ? When even her seems floating on its wave. If she is not afraid by herself, she may be like Alice behind the mirror of erotisme.
