THEME SUMMARY

Flowers and Fruits (c)Lin Zhipeng

The many shapes and forms of “RELATIONSHIP” that exist in this world; As we are made aware once again, of the importance of connections, how can photography capture this invisible thread between all living things, objects and environments. Families, partners, the intimacy between individuals, the relationship between nature and society; although they seem unrelated at first sight, every story is linked to each other. They respond to emotions and events unexpectedly and develop new “relationships”. All the while, the linkage of history, or the reflection on the connection between time and people may also be the foundation which expands to our future. This is your chance to visualize in photography, the invisible yet, certainly existing and infinite relationships.
[Submission Period] from February 2 to April 2

JUDGE

リン・チーペン Lin Zhipeng

Lin Zhipeng(aka No.223) Born in Guangdong, China in 1979. Based in Beijing. Created in 2003, his blog “North Latitude 23” where he published everyday pictures accompanied by short texts received millions views and made him famous among the web community. Lin is a leading figure of new Chinese photography emerging in the last decade, popularizing his work originally via social media and other online platforms as well as his self-published zines. Naming himself “No. 223” after the police character in Wong Kar-Wai’s movie Chungking Express, he offers his point of view on an alternative youth spirit and culture in an often conservatively Chinese cultural context.

He has held many exhibitions in China and abroad including the solo exhibition “223@Akio Nagasawa Gallery Aoyama” in 2019.
