My relationship with my Father plays a significant role in my work in various ways - whether I am subconsciously seeking for the fatherly figure in other men that I never had as a child or his interest in calligraphy appears within my work, the ontology of our relationship is present throughout.
For my most recent project, “Frames of My Father,” I focused on building a relationship with my Father while I was visiting him in Taiwan for three weeks - the camera itself became an apparatus that I used to get to know my own Father better. I see it as the bridge that could connect us. It was also an excuse to ask him to share his past with me so I could document it. I wanted to relive those moments with him instead of trying to find him in others.
