郭嘉 Guo Jia
Born in 1984, Beijing. Works and live in Beijing as well.
“Loneliness” serie combines photography and drawing. He takes pictures of trivial details on the streets, and then he drew on the street photography, adding to them his imaginations and stories and, therefore, striking a sharp contrast between the reality and dream. There rises his unique proposition. You can feel his strong emotions from his works. On the other hand, this series is also a kind of conception piece. It probes into the meaning of photography as a way of expression.
