I am a photographer from China who specializes in capturing landscapes and portraits. My work is deeply rooted in my exploration of the intimate relationships between different elements and the fleeting nature of life itself.
Whether I am shooting on location or in the studio, I am always searching for new and innovative ways to push the boundaries of my craft. With a keen eye for detail and a deep appreciation for the natural and manmade world, I am constantly striving to create images that are both visually stunning and emotionally evocative. Through my lens, I strive to capture the beauty of our world and the unique connections that exist between places and people. Whether I am photographing a shop front or a single individual, my goal is always to create an image that speaks to the complexity and depth of the human experience. For me, photography is a way of exploring beauty in unexpected places, to find stories and share these with others.
Jiva, translated from Sanskrit means a living being or an entity imbued with a life force. In this series, I photographed the moon, the landscape, the branches of trees and other objects that have a strong connection with nature and the passing of time. What I enjoy is the sensation of being in the moment with the things that surround me, small life events that leave traces, fleeting moments that will fade and disappear into a gentle melancholy, but through my images, I seek to capture this transience.
This is an unfinished documentary photography project about the Isle of Arran in Scotland. Having grown up in an inland city, living on an island surrounded by the sea was something I longed for but could not imagine. Through this project I wanted to explore the lives of the islanders. Perhaps further, I am looking to discover the diversity of life forms, whether we should move with the times or stick to our roots and the land, whether we should move on or stay with the status quo.
This photography project documents The Barras Market in Glasgow. Founded in the late 19th century by a young and enterprising woman from Ayrshire called Maggie McIver, who in the 1930’s also set up the adjacent Barrowland Ballroom. The market is located in the East End of the city and has been a vital part of Glaswegian and Scottish culture since the early 20th century. Today it offers a wide range of goods, from classic vinyl records to vintage furniture, handmade crafts, and second hand clothing. Generations of customers have visited the market over the years, hoping to find a bargain or unearth a hidden gem. Beyond its commercial concerns, the market is also a significant community hub – a cultural place where a diverse range of people can explore, connect and share stories and experiences.
As a Chinese photographer documenting the vibrant community and culture of the Barras, I have found myself constantly reflecting on my own identity and the role it plays in shaping my artistic vision. As an outsider, I am acutely aware of my unique perspective and how it influences my work. I am constantly seeking to understand and communicate the nuances of my cultural identity, while also exploring the diverse perspectives and experiences of the people and places around me. Through my lens and my pictures, I strive to capture not only the beauty of the objects and people that surround me but also the complex interplay of cultural influences and personal narratives that shape our collective identity.
