《Land of Hope and Gloria》

Hunker down and peer from another angle, looking down from other horizons. With the lens to record the microcosm of the corner of the bottom, from the inside out of the identity of belonging hidden in each of the crowd in a hurry. We are the recorders of urban changes, using different sketches of light to carry the heavy ink and color. Whether in the countryside or in a corner, every color and expression is bound to be covered and submerged ....... The birth and death of images, the burst of inspiration and life fusion is what will stick and persistently adhere, just like the reverent revelation given by books that will not fade in color to the law.
The countryside as the easily abandoned homeland has long been covered by high-rise buildings, just like the rapid expansion and spread of subway lines, which represent the hope and vision of development on the one hand. By shooting in the historical land of Shishu Lake under the subway S9 as one of the windows is a complex interweaving of steel rationality and warm sensibility, feeling the nerves of such a land also holds secrets and cracks from different groups, directions and industries. In the final analysis, we can always find that everyone on this land is growing upwards, even the construction of the renewal cannot throw this vitality away, all this is like the track of the four seasons of Shishu Lake is changing day by day, but the memories of those mothers are still there.
