Yuan Li - The Expressionist Landscape

Yuan Li: In traditional Chinese culture, the natural world around us is seen as an organic and dynamic entity, which may reveal to us an order metamorphic to the human endeavors. Through images captured, I would like to see that order explored. In the words of Szena Qian, who lived from 145 to 87 BC and whom many consider China’s greatest historian, there is a need “to explore the boundary between heaven and human being in order to understand the changes that took place in the past as well as those taking place in the present, and thus to be able to offer a unique interpretation (about them)”.
 I aspire to do the same photographically.
