Image Information

My projects are based on self-portraitures in different cities in the whole world. This self-portrait was taken by using 4x5'' large format camera on the long handmade monopod. The lens of the view camera which is attached to the top of the monopod, towers to the ground and it shoots people around me and me standing in the middle of Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam. People gather around and form community in the city for their convenience, however, this specific urban issue could cause some inconvenient social phenomenon. Within this phenomenon, I normally seek for some boundary. This boundary might be between “private and public” or “past and present” or it can be a “separation between one group and the others.” Through my photographed images and video footages, I hope to reveal some people’s relationship between these boundaries. If the world is ocean, I, photographer, will be a captain of a boat called ''camera''. Then I must always look at fish or islands in the ocean through my boat.
