VIEW IN MY ROOM
I started Family Stuff project from 2003, till now I have spent 19 years photographed 130 families with their ‘Family Stuff’, I ask families to gather all their earthly possessions and display them in front of their homes. I then photograph them in the midst of all their ‘family stuff’. Taking pictures of the owners of characteristic or representative families, I pay special attention to the relationship between people, houses, environments and current society. I believe every stuff must have a special connection to the owner, without the Family Stuff that is clearly shown in one picture to straightforwardly penetrating the viewers’ vision, we would have ignored some of the material content, or think little about it. Therefore, I hope to use photographic images to interfere with our consciousness. Every part of the Family Stuff is a testament to the faith and condition of life, an evidence of those that have changed and remained during the modernization process. Between the reality and the imagination, Family Stuff finds the logic of our existence through visual enlightenment, confirming the particular presence of China under the grand global change. Robert Frank wrote to me on the title page of The Americans that he gave me for gift: “Thank you for showing your photographs, your work is an open window to look at China, it is good to meet you!”
