Artist statement

My pictures’ contents are about my hometown: Datong City in Shang Xi province, China. This land has thousands of years of history. The culture and human nature of the people that have inhabited this land historically, including my own, have touched and sometimes shocked me. My photography was influenced by my father, particularly the scenes depicting cultural relics in my hometown. I hope that viewers can understand these pictures and appreciate their rich history.
