花樣年華- The Age of Blossoms / The Flowery Years


 
I first heard of the Chinese metaphor 花樣年華 from watching one of my now favourite films, In The Mood for Love, which is directed by Wong Kar-Wai. It refers to the fleeting nature of youth and beauty, just like how a flower that blossoms must eventually die. Most of my friends and myself are moving between high school and university, adolescence and adulthood. Our worlds and ourselves are changing. These photos are of my friends who are caught in this change, in these flowering years.
