Artist Bio

Growing up in China, I’ve been a film photographer that creates works out of social relationships and real events with great casualness and informal motivations.
My works aim to transmit human connections and surrealist feelings, breaking the fourth wall. My daily creating process includes going on the street asking strangers for picture exchanges, talking with the kids about how they feel, and exploring places that nobody ever wants to go. I expose myself to new environments with both curiosity and fear. All the subjects in my pictures are people that I don’t know, or I just met at the moment.
