《大地》
(2008-2018)

我1976年出生于内蒙古呼和浩特市,内蒙古是我的故乡。内蒙古位于中国北部边疆,面积辽阔,是中国最大的草原牧区。对家乡的感情促使我从新审视内蒙古。2008年1月,我开始了在内蒙古的旅行和拍摄。我先后旅行了多次,这些照片真实反映了现在地处边疆的人们的生活。拍摄《大地》的过程,恰恰是我了解自己家乡的过程。在这广阔的草原,蒙古族传统游牧生活方式受到了现代的影响。一些牧民不再住蒙古包,而在乡镇定居。有的年轻人更愿意穿的潮流些,而蒙古族老人才多穿蒙古袍。

The Good Earth
(2008-2018)

I was born in Hohot, Inner Mongolia in 1976. Lying on the north border, Inner Mongolia is the largest grazing region of China. Han and Mongolian people live off this land. My affection for my hometown made me think of this land. I’ve been photographing Inner Mongolia during my travels since 2008. These photographs are of the people and their everyday life in this borderland region.
On the grand grassland, the traditional nomadic life style was influenced by the impact of modernization. Some herders do not live in the yurts anymore, instead, they have settled in towns. Some young people would rather dress themselves more fashionable ,only old mongolian people wear mongolian dress now.
