ARTWORK
In the realm of photography, in the midst of the rapid development of technology, information overload, and media that challenges old and new generations, there is always still a longing, nostalgia, and obsession with colors, textures, and imperfections offered by past media.

Analog film is one of the reliable media to release the longing. The imperfections and speculations of the results of the film printing process are an escape from the sharpness and certainty of the digital imaging process. Both approaches can be combined into an “instant with an analog feel” approach, with the digital photography that is engineered and printed on an analog instant film.

In this work, I want to play with such approach with an emphasis on three aspects:
playing with the perspective of vision, angle and so on; general and familiar photographic moments; and distorted reality engineering.

This work tells about the experience of mothers today, a new experience in a new era. Being a mother to me means continuing to do what is always thought to be impossible; but then it becomes possible, undeniably helped by access to instantaneous information. The flesh and blood that’s being more and more attached, requiring a constant stream of attention, time, and energy; this is the reality that I am experiencing right now.

It is expected that the audience can read this story about attachment, anxiety, endeavor to play, and hopes of a new mother through this series of photos on display.
