Unattainable Reality is a landscape series that represents places that I have emotional connections with in nature. Water, land, and trees are the primary components in my work. They represent a world that my heart belongs to. A world where I would rather be but is unattainable to reach on a daily basis. This cathartic project takes me away from my streusel and anxious life and out into nature where I find peace in my heart.

Boyuan loves to shoot images with film. Her favorite cameras are Holga and a
4 x 5 pinhole camera. She enjoys shooting with film, developing the film, and making photographs. She currently works with a 4x5 pinhole camera. She likes the excitement when she sees what is really being photographed for the first time on film after it’s developed, which is a lot different than what her eyes saw when she took the photograph. She also likes to make prints by hand. The physical involvement makes her work more personal and intimate. Her printing method includes traditional darkroom printing, historical processes like cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown, and gum bichromate. She appreciates every second she spends on each photograph she makes.
