Photobook "Trance State" features photographer Jungang Zhang's works, which he took randomly during long journeys or camping. To put it another way, the subjects frozen in these photographs witnessed the short pauses in his world as he lived between one shutter press and the other. In some cryptic moments, he would decide to push the shutter again to resume his life.

In Jungang Zhang's photographs, those mud, traces of beasties, plants, and curious surfaces have formed into a sort of mystery and fragility, purposelessly and unconsciously. Without definite intention and logic, Jungang Zhang is more likely to press the shutter under some guidance, capturing the faint light splashed at delicate moments when the photographed subjects slide into the frame. For Jungang Zhang, photography is unresolved. It is the raving in his writing and a frenzied extreme sport. In his own words—"Photography is a pure trance.
