“The Best of Times” by Chinese artist Wu Liewei radiates with energy, zest, playfulness and experimentation. Depicting people from his own circle of friends, Wu Liewei’s photographs celebrate the joy of transgression and breaking with conventions. Sexuality and nudity feature heavily, but do so as matter-of-fact, artless appearances.
