I call my Photography an “ Emotional Documentary”. Walking under so many faces. Where ever I look there is this noise of Emotions. Don’t judge bad or good, I just collect them like raindrops on my skin. They all vibrate in whispers of feelings. I try to close my eyes, they stay and ask me to give them a shape....a name. Past and present those Pictures are time travelers. China is in a War of Times. I apologize for my selfishness and steal a part of you but I’m afraid of death so I preserve everything that touches me into a photograph. Youth is long like a smile. What comes after I can not care and I don’t need for now. What I need is a move of my Finger so I can capture you and hold you. No need to remember, No fear to forget I can always hold you... MA TE
