Stone of enlightenment
I came to another kind of honesty, out of the truth of what I thought, no name, no identity, no story, "I know I am no one, I exist here, nothing more" honesty.
From the boundary of the system to the state of art (inner), staring at the big empty space that pays attention to the facts, there is no meaning in seeing through life. But you still have to live clearly.
Keeping a distance is far more than watching ourselves and seeing how we are making up our own world. Paradoxically, and because of this, our belief system begins to lose its control over us, eliminating all the excuses and scams that make us comfortable.
It turns out that just waking up is to find that nothing is true and eternal, but still joy, freedom and love. Everything is just the experience of the life process, choose what you feel is "worthy" to experience, and still cherishly live in the present.
Bravely remove all kinds of illusion sticks, and only rely on one's own "existence" to exist, and take a journey of rebirth and rebirth from the ashes of nothingness.
Kai-Yen Tu TAIWAN
Many of us have been looking for a better self from farther away. Maybe it was a book, a walk in a forest, a random trip which opened a window to let us unlock ourselves while being in the darkness.
It was photography that has led me to explore myself, explore the unknown, and explore the existence beyond the memory. Photography has turned my life around, led me rediscover and be aware of the beauty in life.
I am a life-learner, observer, traveler, and creator. The world is my home; lessons of life are my best teacher; photography is my profession. I believe that we can find beauty in a grain of sand; I believe in the pureness between human connections; I believe in the meaning and possibility of life. I challenge the expectation and status quo in our society and simplify my life. I started to travel, to live, to communicate with my inner self.
It is like entering another planet through the camera lenses. I started to look at those details that I may never notice; I started to feel and live at the present that I may once forget. Through those images, history and moments captured. You may hear my soft yet determined voice telling you the stories of lives.
I am authentic when I truly live; I am content when I appreciate life; I discover my own existence in a pure, calm and peaceful form when I photograph.
