My name is Xiao (Smile), class of 2023, studying literature and photography. I shoot mostly portraitures or civilizations with the depiction of people, as for now, my purpose of creating art is for my love for people. By building relationships with my models and audiences, I learn about the world, different concepts, and my work in different approaches in order to push myself further.
This is the first set of analog film I ever took, mostly I do digital photography. This set of pictures are taken with the intentional nostalgia behind my mind, it was purposefully used to challenge myself in my ability to capture time, space, and this specific setting. It was my intention to stop time and to capture the breeze.
