Appreciation towards Xiao Shihao (Instagram:xiao_shihao) for providing the following description:



35mm lens does not have the exaggerated perspective angle of wide-angle lens, forming a super strong visual impact. And it doesn’t have the air compression of a 50mm lens. On the contrary, the 35mm lens is a fairly flat perspective between these two perspectives, which is closer to the scene seen by human eyes. It gives a sense of being in the moment. Therefore, in my opinion, taking pictures with a 35mm camera is the best way to turn what you usually see into a still image.

In the last two years from 2018 to 2019, I used the ordinary perspective view to shoot the pedestrians in the city spaces. The photos record the state of people in different scale space, their relationship with the surrounding environment, and how the environment in turn affects people’s emotions. There are also some “still things”in the street. They may be a street lamp, a graffiti, a broken iron door. These extremely ordinary images, which I call “urban landscape”, are the micro expressions and symbols of the city, as well as the external embodiment of the complexity and diversity of the city. All of these images make up a city landscape, which gives us an angle to observe the environment we live from the side.
