The photograph taken by Feng Li usually comes from the captures of ordinary life scenes, in which he utilizes the flashlight to freeze and magnify the details, moments or micro-stories ignored by us. There are no precise plans and arrangements within his artwork. In fact that his works derive from the discovery of reality, which somehow is demonstrated in the way of being suddenly interrupted by the camera lens. In general, the subject matter in the photos is not prearranged by the artist, since it's the best way to reveal its state of nature.
More importantly, after an overview of his productions, it's not difficult to find out Feng Li's unique perspective and his way of viewing the world. Although using merely the concept or few adjectives to provide his work with a conclusion is impossible, we could still see that the works themselves have a sense of unplanned uniformity. Or say, if a photo is taken by Feng Li, it is very easy to be recognized even though there are no any similarities in content or form between one another. This might be the most fascinating aspect in Feng Li's photography. So to speak, his photos demonstrate a kind of naturalness without any manipulated traces. Therefore, the artist leads his audience to truly dive into the contemporary period, especially those wonderful moments that have been numerously overlooked by us. This sort of wonderfulness created by Feng Li surely belongs to himself.
