Excerpts from the preface of the 2018 China Pingyao International Photography
"Wisdom" is a spiritual realm and method that transcends experience and cleverness.
Chinese people have a deep understanding of the experience of individuals in
different roles in society.
Whether it is the ups and downs of the eunuchs or the bitterness of life, the Chinese intellectuals already know this.
like the exquisite and profound five thousand words of the Tao Te Ching,
Chinese poems have also found this lingering turn, turning everything into a combination of a spiritual position and a few words.
Life requires the accumulation of time and the tempering of experience. If all feelings are born and unchanged, then life will lose its meaning of existence.
For such a visual interpretation of the spiritual realm and position, it requires the creator to have a wide range of life experience and deep understanding.
This is the author of this work, their average age is over 60 years old,
For the time being, we will not use the title of artists to define their social roles,
Because they used their own perspective of life to interpret the visual meaning of the dim lights, the works are mature and refined,
Fully reflects everyone's different understanding of the world and life.
They also use their own lenses to give the visual possibilities of the dim lights. Their age and experience become an advantage here,
Despite the use of modern technology and equipment, the visual context is completely Chinese, which is the inheritance and development of tradition.
For photography, for life, all this is enough.
