城郊之夜(2022- 至今)
Night in the Suburbs


Last year I moved to a suburban area. In recent years, China has built many tall buildings but lacks public spaces.Here is no exception, at night people don’t know where to go, so they take a walk along a river. This has become a public space for the community where people like to exercise, walk their dogs, set off fireworks, and sometimes burn paper. The villages on the other side of the river are pitch black at night, making this place look like a stage from a distance.This reflects the rapid development and the efforts of ordinary people in some corners of China that may go unnoticed.
