Afterword

Few people know what they look like from behind. This book might be seen as mirrors in a fitting room.

These photographs were selected from my work between 2003 and 2007. For some of them, I do not remember exactly what I was thinking at the time. All these photographs, however, prove that I have been attracted to all these figures, and some of them remain so powerful to me that they motivated me to make this collection.

I classify this album as a coffee table book. Readers, including myself, would flip through it starting from any page, anytime and anywhere, without expecting a conceptual ambition. And one might come upon something sometimes. During the tough process of sequencing, scanning and dust-removing, I repeatedly stared at these portraitures and their fine details, sometimes seeing nothing, sometimes seeing something behind what I was looking at.
