One day, on the way from the seaside, I found a flat sea fish. It was not very big, but it attracted me. So I picked it up and observed it carefully. I found it so attractive that I had the impulse to shoot it. So I took it back to my work place and took a picture.

In the process of shooting, I found its details and individual differences. It is not waste mixed with garbage. It stands proudly in an instant, surpassing death. Since then, I have photographed more and more dead creatures, and the theme of “neglected death” has gradually formed. I brought this topic to the photography festival.

My job is to experience, discover and think, and then convert these photography methods into visual works; If I think an idea is very important, I have a very urgent motivation to complete it, and then print it, watch it, think about it. This work will also bring other people visual pleasure of thinking or appreciating the work.

Everyone has to experience many things, which are endowed by society, history and environment. After experiencing some things, I will think about them, and think about the deep causes of these things from these things, and also extend the meaning of life.

In my works, I emphasize that everyone must face death. All life will end and form will disappear. Human beings only pay attention to their own death, turn a blind eye to the death of other animals, and even kill them with their own hands. For example, kill flies, mosquitoes and cockroaches in summer, for example, take some animals as food. Their death was abandoned and neglected.

The difference between animals and people after death is that humans use certain rituals to express death, and humans have formed this tradition of death attitude in the historical development. And the death of animals is abandoned, then decayed, and finally disappeared.

My work is a kind of release, an explanation, a force I can rely on. For me, I need to always remember the fact that everyone will die, but I also need to constantly explore the meaning of my life. This is different for everyone. Using images to preserve this kind of death is not only a kind of respect, but also a reflection on the significance of human existence.
