I don’t see myself as a photographer but an urban anthropologist, who utilized photographic equipment to study life and cultural phenomena.
For the past twenty years, my photographs tend to focus on the moments that pass me by and never return. My object matters are people’s daily routine, human nature and what’s left in our lives. I am not interested in setting out to produce beautiful photographs. I rather spend days, sometime months, wandering from place to place to document urban lives and what could have been the remain memories in someone’s life.
