Memento Vivere

Life is short. For some, life is miserable.

“Virginia’s Death reminds me to living well, Memento Vivere is a project in which I record significant moments before the slip away. The intimate moments with my wife, the humors in the world, the introspective moment i spent alone… the important activities for which I make time.

I keep photographing my everyday life, when I’m dinning, taking shower, listening to music, commuting back home… Sometimes, I would make short trips and photographs trying to take the visible world images that mirror my feeling and state of mind. When looking back at the moments, I sequence and finish the work through my intuition.

I imagine one day, when looking back at the pictures, I’ll say, That was the year. That is my love. That is me”.

“To look life in the face, always, to look life in the face, and to know it for what it is… at last, to love it for what it is, and then, to put it away…” (Virginia Woolf)
