Asked to do a residency around the Silk Road, Luo traveled between Xian and Tianshui. Although the photographs look like documentary images, do not get fooled, the artist here has enough technique and intelligence to use the photographic medium to pursue his one obsession: Traces of cultural expressions and the human archeology. It does not matter the medium or the process, what is of interest is the author and this is particularly true of this work where no matter what place or subject Luo Yongjin looks at, he manages to show us his feelings with the most natural uses of the photographic process and technique. For as many years and bodies of work that I have known Mr Luo, he always manages to show me a different but personal view that combines to perfection the places and the mind.
