Zigong at dusk
This the buildings in this scene belong to the oldest district of Zigong City, China. This suburb is called "Ziliujing" (θͺζ΅δΊεΊ) District. It has been around for at least 500 years. Today, Ziliujing and Gongjing district are merged to form Zigong City.
I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I picked up a camera in January 2009 in my school's photographic society, and I have never looked back. Years later, I have explored various different forms of photography, from event coverage, to fashion, to documentary, to photography using DIY lenses, and most recently, to film.
I must thank my seniors who have been so instrumental in developing in me a passion for this art. It has been said that there are two kinds of teachers: one gives the man the fish; the other teaches the man to fish. I believe my seniors are of a third kind: they have made me want to fish. They have imparted me with important technical skills, but they have also inspired me to continue photographing for six years.
"To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt." -Susan Sontag
