(On-going, 2013 — )

"To the place where light never changes,
and people stroll through the dust,
where a thousand miles of river hidden in the fog.
To the first place I have been, but don’t know much about."

I tried to reconnect with Hunan, a southern province of China, where everything seems suspended and eternal. It was the first place I had ever been in the world. I also turned to the place I grew up, Shenzhen, a city as young as me, where everything is marked by perpetual movements and rapid changes.
The population of Shenzhen grew from 30,000 to 15,000,000 in the span of thirty years, which made me curious and aware of the relation between the limitations of space and the sudden expansion of the city. I look into both the new and the old in modern China by photographing between these two places.
I am particularly interested in how human experiences are distinct yet connected.

为了寻访与城市和人们的稀疏联系,我重访自己在世上到过的第一个地方,湖南。我根据仅存的记忆和幻想拍下这些照片,尝试勾勒出一个虚有的,浪漫化的地域景观,呈现自己对“不曾经历过的出生地”的认知与向往,以弥补此前二十年的空缺。在深圳长大的我,好奇这两种截然不同的经历是如何影响了自己,以及与我分享这些城市的千千万万人。

我对看似截然不同却内在相连的事物感兴趣。我还相信由于抑制、对抗而产生的相反的能量,与它的本身其实是相同的。就像一个人无论如何变化,日后到达多少目的地,都能够回到最初的位置。如果能这样想,瞬息与永久,崭新与陈暮,我与从未离开过这里的人们,也就没有多么不一样。

相机记录的是在微小的瞬间,我与眼前现实之间的一种不可控又无用的感知力。与此同时,我也在想象平行时空中,那个确实在这里生活过的自己。
