As time goes by, we’ve become more familiar with these lands of ruin. Other than annoyance, they do not seem to cause much of a stir in our hearts anymore. Time is power, after all. It leaves traces on this land. As we walk through the ruins, all the achievement and degradation that ever occurred are revealed. Therefore, we do not feel ashamed, nor are we proud. Ruins contain some kind of formal beauty that transform abandonment into submission to the land. In a space that once lived but seems lifeless, force people to experience darkness with extravagant lights. Capture the sense of surrealism in this relatively numb society. During the lighting and shooting process, we can clearly feel that we’ve come to this day along with all the discarded. At that moment, we not only see the splendid lights, but also feel the beginning and end of time looking at us. International Photography Awards Announces Category Winners of the 2014 Competition.
