Built with Berta.me

  1. Gu Zhongsheng

    1983 Born in Jilin Province, China.

    Many of the people whom I love the most are deaf: My grandmother who raised me and my younger cousin who is like brother to me. I grew up with them in Yanji, in JiLin province, a small town on the border of China and North Korea. The residents spoke Korean, Mandarin and some were fluent in Russian, but I had no use for learning any of those languages.

    Instead, I tried to find a way to talk, outside the realm of words. With movement, with shape, and with image.

    Photography came to me naturally. It exists outside the confines of traditional language. It has it’s own logic and system of expression. A photograph doesn’t have to be read, it does not have to be heard. It just is. Look at it.

    As a Chinese man living in New York, I have taken photography as my true native tongue. My work is focused on trying to explore and expand the possibilities of photography as a method of communication. So that this visual language of mine, can be more nuanced, more meaningful, more lyrical.  

    The focus of my work goes beyond trying to capture something visually but instead I want to capture something invisible. Perhaps something only I can see, or perhaps something that occurs in our memories.

    忠升

    1983年出生于中国东北吉林省的边境小城延吉。

    2005年在北京电影学院学习摄影,目前工作和生活在纽约。

    摄影来到我的自然。它存在于传统语言的局限之外。它有自己的逻辑和表达系统。一张照片不需要阅读,也不需要被听到。你只要看它,然后思考就够了。

    作为一个华人生活在纽约,我把摄影当作我真正的母语。我尝试探索摄影作为一种交流工具的更大可能性。所以我希望我的视觉语言更简洁而抒情。我试图拍摄到人们视线以外的东西,一些对时间和空间的界限更具有穿透力的影像或者它紧紧是我们的记忆或想像,但是它真实存在,而不是形式上的为了抽象而抽象或者为了极简而极简。
