Statement
Photography is an art form in which the poetic quality of concrete objects can be obtained and expressed. I try to establish an “illusion” or “alternative reality” through my work. These photos were taken during 2003 to 2015 from all across China. Life is a journey. These photos are my questions to the secrets of this journey, as well as the answers for these very questions.
