“I am most interested in density… My aspiration is to show at least 1,000 people or their traces on every picture. Be it the illuminated windows of their apartments, the light streaks of their vehicles or their clothes hung out of windows for drying. Even if you do not see people directly, you can see their footprint on the urban environment.”
His goal is to capture urban existence by showing 1,000 people or their traces (windows, laundry, etc.) in every picture.
