Entry Description

羌是一个有上千年历史的民族,主要生活在中国西南部的高山中。2008年 遭受汶川地震后,国家进行了大力的重建。原本是阻碍与外界相通的山, 上面修好了能通车的公路后, 山就成为了城镇化建设的?? 速器。这个古老 民族正处于现代化进程的融合和矛盾之中。 汶川也是我的故乡,所以《羌的山》的拍摄也夹杂着我的记忆,尝试以一 种“身在此山中”的角度,寻觅我所期望的羌人和羌寨、山川,这种当代人 和景观的关系。在山川穿行的这种体验,也是中国国画山水的参与形式, 我也是故事中的一个人物,采用非线性叙事的方式,图像只是过程的结 果。 本次只选择了5?? 照片,剩下的请在我的网站上观看。 www.lyugeer.com Qiang is an ethnic group with thousands years of history, mainly live among the mountains region of southwestern China.After the Wenchuan Earthquake in 2008,the government strongly reconstructed this area.The mountains, which were the block of the communication with the outside world, after the road that passes vehicles has been built,become the accelerator of urbanization.Nowadays the ancient ethnic group is facing the integration and contradiction, which are brought by the process of the modernization. Wenchuan is my hometown, so"The mountain of Qiang"project is also mixed with my memory, I try to use a point of view from an old Chinese saying called "Being in the mountains.”, to find what I expect of the Qiang people,Qiang region, mountains and the contemporary relationship between human and Landscape. The experience of through the mountains, also is a way of participating traditional Chinese landscape painting,I am also a figure in the story,I use a non-linear narrative way,and the images are just results of my movement. This time only selected 5 photos, the others please watch on my website. www.lyugeer.com
