White Night - Feng Li
This is photographer Feng Li’s first monograph, with a selection of his colour works shot from 2005 to 2015. The title comes from a sentence in the Bible, “By day they meet with darkness, and grope at noon as in the night.”
Feng Li says: 'I don’t know whether they are photographic works, but they do present another side of our reality. I can't explain them specifically, as I can't understand the world. The only thing I can tell is my questions. Most of the time I am the person who asks, and answers a question in front of me by asking a new. There is always a question mark following the answers. I can ask at any time with my camera. The seemingly calm world is torn by sharp flash, and deep shadows are left in the souls. The night outside my window is white as the day when the passengers walk in a hurry. This is my world, of white night.'
Feng Li (b. 1971), is a street photographer based in Chengdu China.
