New generation’s unconventional graduation photos

| June 12th, 2011

From Sina:

Mid June to July is the graduation season in China. It’s a tradition that classmates gather together and take a group photo as the graduation photo. It’s kind of important to most graduates, without a group graduation photo their university lives seem incomplete. In the group graduation photo, graduates put on cap and gown or suite up, line up orderly and the photo shooting is done fast and nicely. However, that’s the conventional way to take graduation photos, this year many graduates have chosen to do something different. Here are some of the unconventional graduation photos:

Graduates suit up and line up, but with a paper board hold in hand, on which written " XX " Ask for/ look for…It’s a humorous way to ask for something, which first gains popularity on the internet. The content of what they "ask for" is different, such as "lose weight", "hug", "pretty boy" and also include some rather controversial issue as "being a kept woman".

Graduates have turned the graduation ceremony into a red-carpet event.

While the above photo may only take on a funny look, but take a look at how the old graduation photos was in different eras, especially in 50 years ago, it’s interesting to know how and how much it has changed in recent years.

    I prefer the graduation photos with the bad haircuts and square hats. They are worth much more as memory than the current y generation of being so facebookish, cheap and nasty.
