I was thinking about the meaning of photography. There are enough records of the real world, from bacteria to galaxy, as well as the scenes and details of our lives. My photographic proposition and purpose is the combination of personalized visual observation, representation, internal presentation and self-awareness. Tell a story, stating a proposition is the main task of contemporary photography, but my choice is to photography as a carrier of material intake and expression, use any can use techniques and methods of it doesn't really matter, and the final rendering picture is my concern, it is an exploration of my own, because not every painting is derived from the visual, The expression of emotion and artistic conception occurs naturally. What I have to do is to constantly destroy, reorganize, discover, and then decide when to stop. To be faithful to oneself can gain infinite power. To inherit the tradition, learning and betraying can expand, and finally gain freedom of expression.
