Luo Yang, female, born in 1984, liaoning Province China. Graduated from the lu Xun academy of Fine arts, now lives and works in Beijing as a freelance photographer.
“Girls” has been an ongoing photography project since 2007, and has involved me shooting the girls around me in an attempt in which – through the lens of the camera – to grasp some sense of understanding of their lives.
The images included in the “Girls” series charter a period of personal development, with reflections between myself and other girls around me apparent in each shot. Whilst I was growing up, in order relieve myself of loneliness, I tried to find a sense of comfort through the stillness of the photographic image. These images are both private and non-private.
