photography booklet, (broken) poem
The booklet is a reflection of my first two years of stay in the State.
Before I came to the State, I only know about U.S. from mass media: MTV channels, fast food chains and city landmarks etc. My first 2 years in U.S. was extremely difficult due to the culture shock and language barrier. Taking picture became the only way I can comfortably communicate with this land. Through the viewfinder: a square, I observed and re-learned those cultural faces.
The text is written to America. For me, she is like a fictional character, who I am not able to capture fully nor to understand. The sentences are broken, without proper gramma and sometimes they're lost in meaning.
