Feng Li Biography

Feng Li (born in Chengdu in 1971, currently living and working in Chengdu) is a photographer who can discover something special from the ordinariness, hanging out in the city and using the eagle-like eyes to observe the person, objects and scenes. Once he finds the targets tending to 'the truth', he will close to it and solidify the moment with flash lamp. The series 'White Light' will be exhibited at Photo Fairs | Shanghai, which won the New Photography Annual Jury Prize of the 8th Lianzhou International Photography Festival. His works try to redefine the relationships among life, moments, and the photographer. The role of the photographer has been emphasised so that the common daily scenes are represented in an intervened way.

Under Feng's flash light, the true person, objects and scenes are always gloomy, more closing to the anomalies of life. And this is what the truth in Feng Li's eyes. He insists that he just recorded the 'animals' in city's 'white nights'. What is paradoxical, Feng has a government job, and his job is to take pictures and record those photos we often see in official and mainstream media: bright, perfect and full of 'positive energy'.
