Dior commisioned fine art photographer Quentin Shih to shoot these pictures for the reopening of the Dior boutique in Shanghai. The controversial images, entitled Shanghai Dreamers, featuring the Spring 2010 couture, are displayed in the store windows.According to Mr Shih: "My inspiration came from a certain Chinese style of group photography but these ceremonial photographs marks a departure from a certain historical period and herald the future. I created some typical Chinese groupings; they replicate themselves, wearing plastic clothes. They stand on display in vast spaces or upon a stage - because they were, and still are dreamers. As China enters a new era, they begin to stand together upon a world stage, self-conscious and yet filled with power."The dozens of women and men who flank the Dior-costumed models, are copy clones of one individual, duplicated again and again. Critics are saying the Dior portraits are a blatant depiction of the idea that "all Chinese people look the same." Is this racist? There's no smoke without fire, let's just put it that way.
