This project is focusing on contemporary older American artists living in the San Francisco Bay area. We will come to know “Who they are” and “What kind of art they are doing” thru my work. I am trying to merge the artist into their works and create a new series of portraits to show these artist’s distinctive personalities. These artists are from different areas of the arts and all are seniors in their 60’s. There are painters, photographers, filmmaker, a landscape designer, a sculptor, an actress and mixed media artists etc. Most photos are taken at their studios, but a few have been taken at their homes. The gears used for this project are Cannon 5D Mark III, Cannon 5DSR, Cannon 24-70mm f2.8 lens, Mac pro Pc and Prophoto B1, as a supporting light. The works will be displayed and showed in different sizes, pigment prints on Hahnemule Fine art Baryta Satin paper.
I was born in1988 in a small village of Shan Xi province, China. I come from a simple farmer?s family.Amazed by the images that came out from a little box, I changed my track of life and started my journey on Photography.I am so picky on my shoots that it could take me two to three hours to complete one single shooting or the whole day, if not longer. And this is not all. It may take me weeks to think and try different ways to express my concepts. Furthermore, I did most of the processing and printing by myself. I am determined to be a great photographer in fine Art.
