Under the Lychee Tree
Under the Lychee Tree is a photographic project that confronts the human condition through themes related to memory, grieving, and the cycle of reincarnation. By creating metaphorical images and symbols in the objects and historical landscape, I am looking for the subjective image of the place where I grew up, aiming to create an allegory to illustrate intimacy, the impermanence of life and implicit emotions. The relationship with local myths, folklore and their imagined content is the source of information for the works, and this strategy functions as visual and textual parables. These fragments have inherited the spiritual sustenance from generations, seeking an understanding of life, death, love, and the courage to confront the loss.
