Born and raised in Beijing, I went to the United States for graduate study in the field of environmental policy in 2010, and moved on to work as a videojournalist at Voice of America ever since. In September 2016, I decided to quit my job and move back to China, with the hope to document people's life there.
I have been quite attracted to yet intimidated by street photography for a long time, but somehow I finally collected enough courage to start doing this 2 years ago. At this point, I still feel quite self-conscious sometimes and probably have too many thoughts in my mind when shooting. However, I know documenting the lives of people is what I want to pursue with my photography, and the urge has never been stronger.
