Medium-Format Film Photo Project
The scenes of mystery and enclosure aim to explore relationships, connections, conflictions between individual and surroundings. I discover for formal relationships between harmony and confliction, calm and breakthrough frailness and adamancy, control and chaos.
Someone once said: “The most ambitions project intends to appeal not only to the eyes but to all other senses so that the impression arises of being completely in the artificial world.” What I want to do is freely moving styles and approaches as a way to participate in photographic field as broadly as possible. This project is a new attempt of combining photography with another art form. In each photograph, a complex pictorial space (dynamic characters and static environment) confronts the spectator for a split second with the inability to recognize what exactly expressed in pictures, and thus awakens a more reflective need to deduce stories in the pictures. The combination of performance and photography to break discrete moments of everydayness, evoking the mixture friction and stimulation of different senses. These weird lights and hands and feet allows seemingly random and unordered to break balance of photos, in fact as representation of contingencies happens in our life.
Naturally, in the course of time, art manifests very various contents, but that does not determine the variation in its appearance, even when the means of expression are fully developed, the type varies. I want spectator to think more space beyond photograph which isn’t a coping machine of reality, but a tool of aesthetic expression. To put it differently, photography is not a mirror which always remains as the same as reality, but a living power of apprehension which could be various types. The idea of reality changed as much as idea of beauty.
