2006年的舊曆新年假期期間,香港迪斯尼樂園發生了一場騷亂。由於當時無法容納中國遊客滾滾而來的人潮,迪士尼樂園關閉了它的入口閘門,導致打算在樂園裡度假的憤怒民眾失控暴動。受到這起新聞事件的啟示,時任香港《南華早報》的資深攝影記者岑允逸開始紀錄中國南方的諸多公園,對一個追趕消費主義與休閒文化的新中國進行了現象觀察。

公園和花園長期以來一直是中國休閒和放鬆心情的場所,但自從轉向社會主義市場經濟後,許多市政府迅速投資建設了許多「偽主題公園」,以提供聚居在城市的工人和移民勞工一個遊憩之處。這些公園空間充滿了不諧調的超現實的景觀,並試圖擬仿迪士尼所製造的夢想。在這些經過特別安排的環境裡,遊人往往可以不受管制地在公園景點中自由遊走,以逃離公園外混亂的現實境況。在《係.唔係樂園》書中,岑允逸保持著審慎的距離,紀錄下急遽轉變的中國城市的現代社會景貌。

Themeless Parks was inspired by a disturbance at Hong Kong Disneyland during the 2006 Lunar New Year holiday. Unable to accommodate the throngs of mainland tourists, Disneyland shut its entrance gates, leading to a riot by angry families intent on spending the day at the park. The news event lead Shum, a photojournalist with ten years' experience at the South China Morning Post, to ask the question at the core of the project: Just why are Chinese so wild about the phenomenon that is Disney?

Park and gardens have long been traditional places of leisure and relaxation in China, but since the shift to a socialist market economy, many municipal governments have invested in rapidly building "pseudotheme parks" to entertain workers and migrant laborers now concentrated in urban environments. These public spaces are filled with jarring, often surreal attractions that attempt to project the dreams of Disney but that generally fulfill more ambiguous roles in recreation and amusement. Within these manicured environments, Shum found that visitors were free to interact with the attractions in largely unregulated ways - an escape from the chaos beyond the park's borders. Shum maintains a critical distance from the subject matter, examining the parks and modern China through the lens of consumerism and the culture of leisure.
