What can we do with the camera? I think that the camera can not only be used to record events, but also to create art like a pen. I move the camera by using the Chinese calligraphy technique. The moving process is very similar to writing with a brush in my childhood. There are the starting up, the moving, and the ending with the ‘brush’.
This series of photos is my exploration and reflection of the inner world. Everyone may have another self in his heart. I tried to show both inner and outer self in one work. The two selves can be very similar or completely different. They can have endless expressions, unbelievable changes, and give me great inspiration. I describe the person's outer and inner world in my way and leave the subtle details of the changes.
What is your inner world like?
