For me, photography is not only an eye to perceive the world, but also a mirror to reflect myself. The GR has always been my faithful companion through various stages of my creative life, it is like my talisman and an extension of my life. Whether I am on my way to work or out for a walk with my daughter, I always have my GR on my chest or in my hand to capture the unexpected encounters along the way.

My photographic journey began as a search for connections. I like to find all kinds of emotions in the city and capture these heart-touching moments with my camera. These images allow me to feel the subtle connections between people, objects and nature.

Gradually, I have realized that I have been detached from the world, always observing rather than participating. I want to explore my own mind, I want to know what the world means to me, I began to search for my inner voice and try to express my inner feelings, including joy, anger, sadness, and even my hope and despair through my photography.

I collect everything in my life- affection, joy, longing, doubt, pain- to put them into my work. I thank GR for accompanying me on this journey, I can use it with the purest heart and feel life without distractions.

對我而言,攝影不僅是感知世界的眼睛,也是反思自我的鏡子。在不同的創作時期,GR 一直是我的忠實夥伴,它就像是我的護身符,也是我生命的延伸。無論是在外出工作的途中,還是與女兒漫步的時刻,我都會將 GR 掛在胸前或拿在手上,拍下沿途的不期而遇。
