Now / Elsewhere
Photography / Installation / Book

This project is the byproduct of my natural travels through the urban-rural fringe of Chengdu with an unpretentious nomadic attitude to life.

Armed with a small Sony camera, I photographed isolated and mediated sceneries, searching for information metaphors of countryside, nature, capitalism, and time in an attempt to compile an interlocking web.

I tried to open up this dialogue - the How do these seemingly distinct realms of city and countryside, humans and nature, absorb and devour each other, mirror each other, and what are the paths that connect these different things?

Each object is a metaphor for people living in cracks at the edges of society. I sought to use photography to shape a section of lost and found and to shelter these displaced individuals.
