To Live with You

To Live with You

When the Yue-tao River flowing under the Chongde Road day after day and night after night, how would people interpret the relations between their lives and the river? When people coming and going on this land, how much would they remember about the river? In a routine summer day with frogs croaking and cicadas chirping, how would the invisible river converge with the river in their memories? How would the sky portray the landscape? What kind of footprints would lives leave behind? And how would water flow through various sections of lives?

When I arrived here with my camera, I would live with this land. Those who I have encountered and what I have seen would become the objects where I seek for answers. The recorded vocabularies, figures and traces will be jointly woven into private talks left for following generations.
