For the past ten years, I have captured memories through photography in order to express my experiences in an artistic yet realistic manner. 

 

Photography has, to me, what painting and writing doesn't. While a painter or writer can express themselves freely without boundaries or compose abstractions on a plain canvas, photography is always tied to reality on a intrinsic level, regardless of how the final composition presents itself.

 

For me, it is about competing with time, capturing light, through reflection and emotional filters, much alike what we do in our lives.

 

When overlapping images and accidental exposures occur as if cosmic surprises and racing thoughts intercross, such accidents can also be beautiful.

 

我選擇以攝影記錄這10年來的日子,是因為我希望將過去的旅途上遇見的一切,更踏實地呈現在這個展覽上。我總是相信,透過相片最直接能夠向人說明當下的情感。

 

攝影對於我來說是獨一無二的,他有著畫畫,文字創作所沒有的有趣之處,不像畫家及作家在白紙和原稿紙上天馬行空進行創作。相比之下,相片上看到的一切更真實更直接。

 

攝影和人生一樣都在和時間競賽,不停的捕捉重要的時刻。隨着不同的光線折射,感情投入,出來的作品也會不同,人生亦然。

 

我在想,有時候不小心的曝光與影像的重疊,就好像生活上大大小小的意外與思緒交錯,「意外也許是可以美麗的。」
