Pink is the delicate sweetness, tenderness and innocence. Pink is the supreme romance, elegance and nobility. Pink is a beautiful reverie, rendering the fragments of infinite imagination. Originated from the collision of nature and reality, pink brings out new possibilities, so as to present a more evolved aesthetic language. The truly addictive color lies not only in the appearance, but also the desire that can't be wiped off. Pink is nature, youth, unspeakable sexy, and creative soul that spills out of the four seasons.
Mars Highway One
Having traveled to the Northwest of China a couple of times, I always heard that there exists a place that resembles Mars. Since there is so little information available about this area, never could I find a proper opportunity until this time, when I happened to pass by during my shooting schedule, so I decided to alter my route and set this area as a waypoint. The road was unpaved thus extremely bumpy from 0km to 76km, judging from the roadside markers, and much of the route could only be searched and traced by ourselves. It was no man's land within a range of 200km, and upon entering there, it was as if we lost contact with the earth, as there was no signal or no people, and we could hardly see any living things. Due to the weather and the peculiar landscape, the air was suffused with flying sand. Accidentally, the off-road vehicle we drove got into an area of sharp rocks, and the tires were punctured, when it was getting dark. If we hadn't replaced the tires before nightfall, we might not have made it out of this no man's land. There are only a few photos remaining because of the extreme weather, yet they are particularly precious.

This group of surreal creative works is created by a storm coming up in the desert. This group of works was shot in China's Taklamakan Desert, the world's second-largest drifting sand, which is known as the Sea of Death. Animal carcasses and fur can be seen everywhere when walking into the boundary line of the desert. Sand dunes are expanding continuously in the desert. Affected by wind, sand dunes shift frequently. The wind can blow up sand walls to three times high.
A city where hundreds of thousands of people once lived, but now it is empty and ruined. In the vast Gobi Desert of Qinghai, there are huge complexes lined up in rows. The houses here are ordered and the roads criss-cross, but they are empty, the houses collapsed, and there are ruins.

Yangguan, or Yangguan Pass, is a mountain pass that was fortified by Emperor Wu of the Western Han Dynasty around 120 BC and used as an outpost in the colonial dominions adjacent to ancient China. It is located approximately 70 kilometres southwest of Dunhuang, in the Gansu territory to the west of the Shaanxi province in the far Northwest China, which was in ancient times the westernmost administrative center of China. It was established as a frontier defense post, as well as a developed place in China's remote western frontier; Emperor Wu encouraged Chinese to settle there. Today Yangguan is located in Nanhu Village, along the Hexi Corridor.
