For his part, Leleu says that he hopes "to break the clichés people have about Chinese people" through his images. Certainly, these images present a different "face" of China than the one that you might see in the newspaper. At the same time, China is hardly the only place in the world where people sleep on the job, or outside! This Big Picture article (which Leleu posted to his blog) shows photos of people catching naps around the world. To his credit, I think Leleu's images are much better composed than most of the pictures on this list—and most photos in that article are showing people sleeping in the middle of protests or festivals. Leleu has found people in more everyday situations, which introduces some humor into his work.
