Mirror: Seeing is Not Everything is a series of Black and White photographs that explore different facets of emotions in an abstract way.When I walk around the park, my eyes cannot see the roots of a tree under the ground. However, I realize the roots exists when my eyes see the green leaves of the tree, because one cannot exist without the other. The idea behind these photographs is to collect and analyze my accumulated thoughts, like miners dig ore. My images explore the shallow surface of artist’s thoughts but also go down deeper into my subconscious to mine individual memory and history. Through these photographs, I attempt to rediscover the original untainted character,perhaps a lost innocence from birth.
I am interested in the feeling of old film for that reasons the negative film has an organic nature. The images both represent a new feeling from a combination of historical processes, which gives both an organic sensibility and modern technology that make possible the world of fantasy. The digital processing and effects enable me to build a structure of images, and create a more mysterious mood. The sizes of the mirror both reflect and show the hidden ego and how close the reality is to the subconscious; the closer to the subconscious and point to a hidden ego. The frame size is presented in portrait and as a square, also its work on an intimate scale smaller than ten inches.
I photograph experiences in personal perspective using sequential narrative. The mirror of photographs use models in composed scenes. Instead of communicating of the model represented in the shot, individual models express or personify of my own viewpoint and belief. The mirror is used as a metaphor to create a link between reality and what lies behind that reality. The function of the mirror is to bridge these two different areas. My conceptual work has an important that not only expresses my perspective, but also universal emotions with which others can empathize.
