The Other Month; The Other Day

Artist statement

This series of photos were taken in 2006, separately in Guangzhou and Italy. All the photographed ones are my good friends.

Photojournalism is the first kind of photography I got in touch. I read lots of photojournalism in the university library, and most of them are about those in the First and Second World Wars. They are very impressive and are still kept in my mind. Although my art development is not focused on photojournalism, its influences are reflected subtlety in my photos.

Therefore, I am very interested in observing the people and their surroundings, especially the interrelation between them. Starting from observing and recording, I use photography as the medium to capture the integration between the photographed ones and their circumstances, to express my objective feeling on them.
