The Image of the Silk Road - Tianshui Photography Biennale

场景 The Scene - Moments of life 1986-2006

Jiang Jian

Photography is an art of time.

Moments of life could be carefully captured by a photographer in years of time. By the imprinting of light and shadow, those moments are the evidences of the developing process and living conditions of human beings.

These images are the direct evidences when human beings recall their history.

Looking back to those ordinary scenes of life of peasants in Central China 30 years ago, it seems that we could comprehend the truth of life.

Seasons change fast and time flies. Those vernacular things and fragments of life have formed the course of humandevelopment process.

Time in our life and the value of life will become eternal through those “moments of life ” eventually.
