Publisher's Description

Out of Print. photo-eye's remaining copy is in As New Condition.

These photos were taken on Dongshan Island, located in the Zhangzhou area of Fujian Province.

Modern urban's development tends to afflict those who leave with amnesia-they forget such a place ever existed. I can only follow behind them, using images to “resist” these unforeseen changes. My hometown has been influencing me and shaping me since the day I was born. Like the beginning of a story, I found an outfit passed down from my ancestors in my mother’s room. This is how my home interacts with me. Maybe the only thing I can see is what it wants me to see. Photographing my hometown was like traveling through a dingy memory, through an internal negativity.

In the works, I use the Bachimen Dam, Home, Food, Soil, Gods, and Sea to recreate the beacons of my hometown. I've combined these memories and fragments into a book. This process seemed able to distill the spaces, people, and objects onto the pages. By imposing and removing layers, this volume exposes the significance my hometown has to me - the work is a representation of my hometown in illustrations. It is a cross section of the gradual process of urbanization, allowing us to connect with a city that is frozen in place and reflect on what home means to us.
