  • 《黄沙》是我拍摄家乡的作品,两岁多时,我跟随⽗⺟离开了山东,搬到江苏定居。我对家乡一直有浪漫化的幻想,小时候,它是我的乐园,是我最喜欢的地方,但是在我慢慢长大的过程中,回家的次数少了,我也不再会说家乡话,但是我还是一直把家乡当成我精神上的归依地。直到19年,家乡发生了很大的变化,许多有关我童年生活的印迹杳然无踪,我回到家乡就像是一个异乡人,亲昵感和归依感减淡的同时,我也渐渐发觉,我一直在想象我的家乡,真实的家乡与我想象中的家是不同甚至矛盾的,我从那时拿起相机拍摄家乡,我拍摄了妹妹的肖像和许多离去的背影,我希望通过摄影来展现我对家乡的情感,我也希望通过这种拍摄重新审视我与家乡的关系。
      "Yellow sand" is the work of my hometown. When I was two years old, I left Shandong with my parents and moved to Jiangsu to settle down. I have always had romantic fantasies about my hometown. When I was a child, it was my paradise and my favorite place. But in the process of growing up slowly, I went home less often, and I would no longer speak my hometown dialect, but I still took my hometown as my spiritual refuge. Until 19 years, great changes have taken place in my hometown, and many footprints about my childhood life have disappeared. When I returned to my hometown, I felt like a stranger, and the intimacy and sense of belonging have weakened. At the same time, I gradually found that I have been imagining my hometown, and the real hometown is different or even contradictory to the home I imagined. Since then, I picked up the camera to record my hometown, and I took pictures of my sister's portrait and many left backs, I hope to show my feelings for my hometown through photography, and I also hope to re-examine the relationship between me and my hometown through this kind of photography.
