Books of Photography Series “School Roads”

The road that I took to school was full of adventure. There were new discoveries everywhere, always different.
My heart was naive yet truer to itself back then.
The sensations and feelings I once had walking there still exist somewhere in my heart.
Standing on that same road, where the memories are in the air,
I remembered those feelings I held on to.
Everyone has those feelings, memories, experiences of their own childhood that are largely forgotten yet are foundations of their identities.
I hope that these books can evoke the viewers to feel something, and that the photographs will trigger them to appreciate their own home, and everything around them.

Series “Paperback, Book, and Poster”

One carries a paperback with him and it is always one the move.
One puts a poster on his wall and it becomes a fixture.
A book is something in between the two.
They are essentially the same paper-products, yet the functions and impressions differ.
This series is to enjoy these differences at once,
and to appreciate the broader view of the world that they provide.
