Wild Flowers by the Rock
Cities are created with purpose to serve basic human needs – provide safety, create community and place for education and entertainment. If many centuries ago the cities were a place to be safe from forces of nature, enemies and others in general, then nowadays cities turned to be unpredictable place for life similar as a wild nature. Cities has lost they walls both literary and metaphorically. Today, however, cities have turned into infinite agglomerations wherein the social and architectural constructions also create disorder, alienation and loneliness. In my works, I search and try to kind a represent states of solitude and togetherness of contemporary urban inhabitants. Architecture, landscape, entropy and sublime are main reference points on which I focus when I photograph. This series focuses on China’s hot zone of economic activity, exploring contemporary cityscape transformations in Shanghai, Chongqing, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, ect.
