The Still Flow / 凝固的流动


Mountains can flow, and lakes can be still. The project The Still Flow focuses on natural scenery. In the past two years, by slowly walking among mountains and seas, the artist has used the method of "walking, observing, and thinking" to understand the relationship between “stillness and motion” and make images with a large-format camera. In these seemingly “static” photos, the artist reveals the static and dynamic aspects of each subject. While the photos explore the relationship between “stillness and motion,” they together try to reveal the interdependence and transformation of the opposite sides of all things – the notion of oneness.*
