This series of pictures is a dialogue between me and myself. They
reveal my emotions as I enter new cities. They sometimes convey
what I see of me in these new cities. I was perhaps lonely or
perhaps waiting- waiting for a place I am able to call mine. At the
same time, this creative work process has given me a chance to
self-reflect. When I see the stories and emotions of these people
in the city, I remember those warm corners in my memory.
Therefore, in my work, I also want to present the companionship I
want to make for the city.The city is not just a place where we live
in, but what we live alongside with.
