Chinese photographer Lou Yong-Jin’s first solo exhibition in Taiwan- A Place Far Away will be debuting in AKI Gallery on 2016.04.02. The meaning of 【A Place Far Away】not only indicting the geographic distance but also implying photographer’s spiritual distance with places other than home.
In Lou’s photo series「TRIP • OTHERNESS」presents the images Lou captured when he was strolling around like a Flâneur. He captured not only the tiny details or ordinary moments in life but also the vast and boundless landscapes. The topics that seem common and typical such as《Confucius Temple》and《Guilin》become exotic under Lou’s camera. Through his unique shooting perspective, all objects’ outlook start fading, the inner and exterior boundary no longer exist. The photographer’s sight at heart becomes the view of outer space. In other word, photographer appreciates the spirit that entrust with the object rather than the object itself.
To Lou Yong-Jin, strolling around actually means staying still and observe. During the time roaming around, the photographer keeps realizing, thinking and proving. Just like how Michel Foucault describes Charles Pierre Baudelaire as a product of modern city, Lou Yong-Jin may like a Flâneur, but he captures the fleeting moment and will not satisfied with what he sees and will go on perusing the poetic meaning of history under modernity. Through the works of Lou Yong-Jin, there is always a layer of emotion for the hometown attached with his work.
