My book"Street Impressions"is the project that records many different types of encounters. Some of them lasted only seconds, some of them were dramatic coincidences. I always would like to ask people's permissions when I would come across them by chance, not only for memorizing but also for referencing of my drawings. Has been trying to practice my photography skills to capture these lovely moments, I am totally obsessed with street snap now. Of course I will still insist on drawing this project, hopefully when the next book is issued, there will be more photos beside my drawings.(I will do my best!)
Cinematography records continuous time, photography captures static moments. But our eyes can capture numerous successive images every seconds, our consciousness can freeze so many unforgettable moments, whatever video or pictures, both of them reflects the way of our thinking of this world. Whatever drawing, capturing or recording, I love any interesting way to memorize and sublimate the world, I would have been duty-bound to adhere to what their ideal.
In the end, Thanks everyone for supporting my book. I got many letter which is asking the news of "Street impressions" English version, sorry for let you wait guys. The English version hasn't came out yet, I will definitely tell everyone when it is due to release. Thank you for being patient!
