Night Dream is a series of large-format photography. It explores the intimacy and loneliness of girls. In this patriarchy, girls always have more unspoken pressure than boys. Not only do they gain fewer opportunities than boys, but society criticizes their ages, appearances, and other things that guys get less criticism. However, most girls choose to hide their real emotions and present smiley faces in the world. This series aims to have a glimpse of their intimate world.

Born and raised in southern China, Jiexian Huang graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Spring 2020 with two minors in fashion photography and fashion marketing.
