Stefano Cerio's new photography series examines Chinese theme parks in the off-season. Although amusement parks are a fun place to visit during the summer months, these parks are often left untouched for the remainder of the year. This series depicts abandoned theme parks after the guests leave.
Cerio's series is titled 'Chinese Fun' because he specifically looks at Chinese theme parks during the off-season. His series highlights the strange atmosphere that lingers in these abandoned parks after all of the guests have gone. The pictures are lifeless and appear frozen in time, with no one around to appreciate the whimsy and wonder of the amusement park rides.
The series causes the viewer to think about seasonal venues and what is left behind when there is no one around to fill the space.
