Xinjiang –a land covering 1.66 million square kilometers, is an important part of the ancient Silk Road as well as the core area of Belt and Road. It is where I was born and raised and it provides inspiration for my photographic creation.
During the three decades of photo taking in Xinjiang, I have traveled to Mt. Tianshan, a journey of more than 1.6 million kilometers. I have also traveled to Lop Nor, a forbidden zone, and Altun Mountain, a depopulated zone. I will never forget the journey to the glacier of Mt. Kunlun while risking my neck in order to take photograph there. Along the ancient Silk Road, I experienced the magnificence of Xinjiang and appreciated the wonders of the nature.
Although I experienced a lot of bitterness, sometimes I even put myself at risks, I consider these experiences as parts of my life.
At night, I was often encouraged by the struggling of Populus diversifolia to grow taller and taller. I was often intoxicated with the vast and rippling grassland. In the twilight, when the sunshine is reflected on the snowy Tianshan Mountain, I could see its magnificent “gold summit”. When I was in the “Demon Castle” and surrounded by the peculiar Yadan landform, I would be thrilled by the shrieking made by the blast there. The ice peak and snow hill and icicles on the trees in Xinjiang during winter is another kind of snow world. I was often astounded by the beautiful snow scene in Xinjiang, making me forget all the hardships and obsessed with it.
Xinjiang is a song of praise for life. If you have the chance to travel there, you will certainly be surprised!
