The photos took from 2007 through 2010; Artist Feng uses a pure white background to take portraits for the people living in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.  He tried this simple form to show the unsophisticated and pious Tibetan people, whose typical vicissitudes of life and a sense of spirit of the times in the era of great change through expressions, clothing and personality of different parts.  These portraits can become an image heritage for a people living in a time of great changes. And through these images, show the great respect from the artist to the Tibetan people who have lived on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau for generations.

This street photography series ‘Taiwan Easy’ is based on my previous experience in working with subjective documentary and everyday objects.  I was looking for the unique in the Taiwanese society by abstracting from the differences and the culture shock, sometimes painfully eliminating the colorful and the loud in favor for the settled and hidden.  In the middle of ever-changing flow of events I strived for the silence and stillness, in order and to really look and observe.  The serenity of  little dogs’ graveyard, the festive mood of the Mazu festival, secret smiles and private moments at the anti-ractopamine demonstration – that’ s the color of Taiwan for me.

In this project that took pictures of wooden houses both in Taiwan and America. Taiwan, once as a cultural semi colony of America, always has huge imagination toward America. Taiwanese tend to think American life style as an idea modem. People build wooden building near mountain just in order to imitating Americans. They call themselves dreamers and the building a American style wooden building is viewed as some kind of dream come true. We try to reveal the special relation between Taiwan and America, and ask how this relation affects our way of looking.
