Each coin has two sides; in the consumer society, consumer goods are destined to be wasted the moment they are produced. Considering the destination and the distribution process of consumer goods, the author utilized things from day to day life and the unique aesthetic trait of Polaroid film to display innumerable consumer goods.
the development of photography technology, the doubt on photographic
authenticity has never stopped. My creation has tried to take the
authenticity of images as a breakthrough, not only filming the real haze
and fog, but also producing the images by real haze and fog. Through
classifying, distilling, grinding, mixing, printing and testing the dust
collected from different places of Beijing, I manually print the
landmarks of Beijing by adjusting different playmaking methods, to
express the real landscape and also the strong feeling of the viewers. I
did this to restore reality by using documentary photography, rather
than focus on the photo information behind the images, which is more
important to present the essence of haze and fog and pursue the
authenticity of the photographic works.
《The Form of time》 sources to the youth memories in the real life. The author selects a representative of typical objects, using special liquid materials on its surface were processed repeatedly, by morphological reconstruction to metaphor " The influence of time on real life."
Utopia refers to people's motivation to escape from the dilemma of real life due to the contradictory pressure of the city.
During the postgraduate period, I made a systematic study of art history, among which I was very interested in the work of the 19th century French painter Bouguereau. He has a natural instinct, and his works are full of strong local flavors. The children in the works are like angels. This is quite different from the various normalities that have emerged in the current development of human cities. Therefore, I created a series of works with my personal pursuit of idealization and understanding of the current living environment.
First of all, I once again copied and drew the works of Bouguereau, retaining the background of the works, but drawing out the angel-like characters.
Then, I visited some of the families in cities with my works, and talked with the family members about their urban life. Then I chose the urban scenery nearby and placed my works there. Finally, the children in the family are photographed and recorded in front of my works.
Such a group of photographic works creates a contrast and combination between the current urban living environment and the ideal state pursued by the individuals. Through this work, I stimulate people to think about the problems of the current living environment and bring up the question of what changes we can bring to the next generation.

I photographed the continually emerging landscapes in the city. But it does not mean to show its decline or absurdity, even if it seems ridiculous. I chose to even exaggerate their most touching moments and treat them more tolerant. At the same time, placing people and landscapes in an equally important position, trying to restore a "real" scene, hope to find its value. I hope to build a poetic picture that is even strange and beautiful. It is both surreal and realistic.
Those indescribable objects, that is, life and death, also life and death objects, which are at a critical point, are the subjects of my greatest interest.In 2009, I designed and built a camera that could take more than 24x24 inches of super-large negative. It was actually a wheel-mounted imaging device that was confined to the studio because it could not go out and move. In such a "camera", the photo seems to become more serious. The series is directly photographed from 24 inch photographic paper and contacted with silver foil paper.I used photographic paper as a photosensitive material instead of a negative. These selected photographic papers were more than 30 years old, because some reason has been preserved to this day, but still have photosensitive ability, and now it finally met the fate of light to complete it. It seemed to me that the mysterious glow of its image came from itself, and that wrapped and melted these unnamed objects.
The physical characteristics of the growing self and the specific living environment around it change over time in a variety of ways, just like the hair scattered? I use silk-like image symbolic language as a link between these changes, using blue light, scanning and long-term exposure and so on. Time-related media shooting techniques, and then through some low-contrast and saturation image processing, in the delicate relationship between the concrete and abstract, metaphor of the endless life, complex interpersonal relationships and mind spreads constantly divergent thoughts.
