Invisible Theatre

Street photography is not just a sharp triggering of shutter to shape the outside world in the form of light and shadow. It is simultaneously a curious observation and emotional perception of what’s happening in the ordinary streets at any moment when unpredictable dramas and realities are actually taking place.

I have lived in Shanghai for over 9 years and I explore Shanghai, where urban city and residential lanes are hidden and unknown to me and impact my emotional attachment to the city. Street photography not only enables me to create a documentary view of the unique Shanghai street and the culture behind it,  but also reveals the extraordinary and metaphorical aspect of Shanghai – an invisible theatre of mystery, drama, unease and nostalgia.
