我非常喜欢观察人们的细微动作和神态。我认为在人像照片中最重要的东西是人,是人和人之间
展现的差异化,他们的眼神,身体动作的不同,和每个人表达自己当下情绪所使用的不同的方法。
我最喜欢的摄影种类就是人像摄影。因为我觉得,当我在拍摄大自然和静物的时候,那些静物一
直就在那里,我随时可以去拍下。因为物体的寿命是很长的,只要不被损坏,它们可以一直在那
里。但是人不一样,因为人的生命比起这个世界更为短暂,因为人的情绪变化往往在一瞬间,出现
,结束。所以我想要去捕捉,人们的情绪,和他们自我表达的方式。场景不重要,或许是在他们自
己的环境中,或许是在摄影师布置的环境中。但是每个人都是不同的。特别是,我认为,在现在的
环境下,大家都有了更多的自我独处的时间。当我看到自己的照片时,我常常能看到自己平时,
甚至是在照镜子的时候都看不到的情绪。我认为拍摄人像照片是对每一个不同的个体的学习,拍
摄自己就是对自己的灵魂的探索。

People 2020-2021

Pictures are the mirror of people's emotions. The camera freezes people's
emotions. I like observing people's subtle movements and their tiny emotions. It is the
difference between people, their eyes, body movements, and the different methods
each person uses to express their current emotions. I think that in the current
environment, everyone has more time to be alone. Alone time brings a lot of deeper
thoughts. When I see my own photos, I can often see emotions that I can't see in
normal times, or even when I look in the mirror. I think that taking portrait photos is the
learning of each different individual. Everyone is a box, people rarely show emotions in
their daily lives. Even if they express it occasionally, it is written in water. But in images,
people are open boxes. I want to photograph people because I want to learn more
about people.
