    In his first print project Beijing photographer Zhu Mo explores the idea of personal narratives through his semi-autobiographical photo series, Bright, Bright Day (2012). Consistent with his previous collections such as Drift Sand (2008) and Northway (2009), a series of images of long-distance train travellers, the artist’s focus is on the glimpsed, overlooked, intimate and interior. The images are frequently reminiscent of family snaps – of day trips and time at home with the family – and are arranged to suggest a series of intertwining and open-ended narratives. The concise familiarity of the situations portrayed provides an immediate and intimate connection and the viewer is led to consider the gentle lyricism of the everyday. Moreover, the precise positioning of the images on the page and their sequence through the book suggests a kind of visual poetry. The English title of this series is taken from a photo book of the same name by the Russian filmmaker Andrey Tarkovsky (1938-1986).
