The Meaning Is Beyond the Words
by Fan Lin
Photographer Hang Mingzhi takes portrait for the fascinating sceneries in the reality, which seemingly belongs to documentary photography. These black and white photos are fully filled with the artist’s concern, understanding, obsession and attachment for the objects. They contain strong cultural and aesthetic significance, but have been forgotten, abandoned, distorted and even destroyed. The camera lens freezes the moment so that the attitude of the artist is highlighted. The attachment drags on while the warning and lament haunts constantly. Such feeling gives the pictures deeper essential thinking of the cultural inheritance and the existence of mankind, so that they surpass the documentary nature.
