Biography: I try to show the Chinese philosophy of life and the aesthetic principles 'less is more' and 'empty is full' through my images. Using primarily white tones in the background gives a simplicity and ethereal purity to a subject and passes on a calm, peaceful, infinitely deep and immeasurable feeling to the viewer. The empty space gives viewers a chance to focus on what it really takes to find balance in life and capture a little piece of themselves. Tranquility, simplicity and beauty are the essence of my photos.
