“Who would have thought of such a thing. The photograph could only have been taken if someone could have known in advance how important it was to be in my life… But while it was happening, no one even knows of its existence. Except God.” -- ,Marguerite Duras

“Circumgyration” is a photographic project dedicated to explore the boundaries and possibilities among reality, truth and memory. Photography seems always about now and aftertime. However, I am obsessed with the people and things existing before the invention of photography and not being able to be photographed for whatever reasons. They have always made me sorrow.

It is the reason I try to take fragments of memories from myself and others, and intend to represent scenes from memories by using 8 by 10 large format camera, combining natural and artificial lightings. What I really want to do is to make something too late to be recorded to be reseen. Therefore, these images may be treated as “fake memory”.
