Feng Li -White Night／馮立《白夜》
Over a decade of shooting in Chengdu, China, Feng has captured the most intimate yet bizarre moments on the streets. Yes, singularly, each photo is
Feng's work seeks to excite, intrigue and amaze. And all of that, I have felt. If you follow him on Instagram and love his work there, then you must grab a copy of his book, 'White Night'.
Feng Li's work on Instagram is amazing. Feng Li's work in a book, just spectacular. prettymind blowing. What is most exciting however, is the pairing of photographs. In one spread, on the left, you have a woman going up the escalator, perhaps shocked by the flash Feng used, which has made her eyes go wide open. While the photo on the left shows a man with an enormous toothy grin. You may read into this however you like, but to me, this pairing creates the narrative of the most awkward encounter; it’s as if the man made an attempt at flirting, only to fail in the worse way possible.
In these pairings, Feng has created a fictional narrative of chance encounters. He has created his own beautiful reality, and 'White Night' is our invitation to join him.
