The curiosity is like gravity to draw me into numerous trips in the past decade in America – short and long, near and far, repeated and fresh. The trips have always been meandering and lingering between destinations physically and mentally. Oftentimes, I ended up arriving at the destination too late and exhausted. With piles of photographs bearing the witness of the journeys, I reconstruct the experience and moments that often have been diluted in my memory.
In my first meeting with Joanna looking at my photographs, she asked me “What exactly are you looking for?” I said “I don’t know. I will have to take photos first then I will see.” In fact, the photographs will not satisfy me rather evoke questions; soon there will be another trip with cameras.
