About Me

在我擔任攝影助理的期間,我愛上了攝影。
為了想要更有組織性地學攝影,我去了舊金山藝術大學。
起初我只想要把技術練地更穩扎穩打,但後來開始接觸了藝術攝影、複合媒材、以及各種暗房顯影技法後,我開始著重在如何讓照片說故事。
現今的科技日益進步,照片也越印越精美。但對我來說越是完美無瑕的照片,距離離我越遠,因為我不是一個完美的人,所以完美的照片沒辦法表達我真正所感受以及所體會的。
因此在創作上我開始以手工的破壞與重建去解構攝影本身,想在看似不完美的攝影作品中,找回最真實的自己。

When I was a photographer's assistant, I fell in love with photography. 

Then, I wanted to learn more techniques of photography, so I decided to study overseas at Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
At first, I was just eager to learn lighting skills and compositions. However, when I got in touch with conceptual photography, mixed media, and darkroom processes, I started to pay attention to experiment all kinds of different materials and processes and how to make my photos with narratives.

Nowadays, our technology has been increasingly improved, so the technique of digital printing makes photographs perfectly delicate. Nevertheless, I feel that those perfect photographs have distance from me because I'm not a perfect person. For me, a beautiful and perfect photograph cannot help me to convey my true feelings and concepts of my work. As a result, I decided to destroy and construct my photographs by hands, for I can find myself truly through these "imperfect" photographs.
