Story

Her spirit was with the wind,

as I crept deeper and deeper inside the old abandoned house,

it became more and more mysterious.

I listened,

seeking the mysteries behind the abandoned house.

the old, worn down walls and ripped wall paper…

everything in the house was telling the stories of their owner.

 

It was like a dream,

the fluid motion of the wind carried the sunshine,

glistening from the windows, a beautiful sunlight,

kissing my face, filling the dark rooms with bliss.

Her soul seemed to be at peace.

Inspiration

When I suggested David Meyers having a shoot together, he asked me what I was going for. “adventure”, I said. The solid navy with leather on my 3.1 Phillip Lim dress gave me the idea of “adventure”. We hit right together about this when I came up with the idea shooting in a abandoned house.

What made the shooting went even better was that Meyers knew the place! Since he was working for some of his film projects he used to go out and find lots of those abandon place for his shooting. So we drove down there by a farm where the abandoned house was located. We walked in. It was like a scene in a movie. The house was so old that everything was falling down. Some furnitures were still there, broken and dusty. The sign of the owner seemed to be there as we saw things such as an open old Bible and clothing on the ground…everything made this house so mysterious and attractive to me. I knew that we were gonna have a great shot when I just got there!

During the time we were shooting, an old man walked in. It was kind of embarrassed because we were afraid that this was the owner of the house and he would be mad because we didn’t ask for permission before we walked in. (It happens all the time that photographers get in trouble for shooting. There are freely minds and creative ideas but also rules need to be followed I guess.) And in fact it was the owner of the house! But luckily the gentleman was very nice to us and he allowed us to photographed. And it was because of him that we finally discovered the mysterious behind the house.

So there was an old lady. She owned the house years ago and she passed away. She gave the house to her neighbor John (the man we met). John and her were good friends. She had no other family. (she didn’t get married, so no husband and children). After John got the house he never changed anything and nor did he sell it. “I wanna keep the house like how it was, as she is still here”, John said.

I then felt into a deep deep thought. I was looking around and seeing this differently not only just for the art I was creating, but also love. The love of friendship.

Thank you John!

故事

她的灵魂被时光带走,

房子变得越来越充满神秘的色彩。

我走进这所被遗弃多年的房子,

去寻找我想要得到的谜底。

脱落的墙和尘埃满布的墙纸…

所有的一切,都像在对我无声诉说主人一生的故事。

 

这像是一场梦。

阳光透过窗亲吻我的脸,

透过彩色流转的光线,

我似乎看见模糊的未来中,

有一片光明。

灵感

当我向大卫(他的中文名字)提议一起拍摄的时候,他问我你想要拍什么。“冒险”,我说。纯色深蓝与皮革拼接的3.1 Phillip Lim裙子让我想到了这个主意,“冒险”。然后接着当我决定在一个遗弃的房子拍摄的时候,我们几乎是异口同声的表示好。

让拍摄更加顺利的是大卫知道这些地方。因为他曾经拍摄他的电影项目,他经常去外面寻找这样的地方去拍摄。我们开车到那里,在一个农场旁边遗弃的房子。我们走进去的时候,感觉就像走进了电影里面。房子很久很久了,所有的东西都在掉落。一些家具仍然在那里,破碎且满是尘土。房子主任的遗迹仿佛还在,一本打开的圣经,还有好多旧衣服在地上。所有的一切让这个房子带着神秘迷人的色彩。我那个时候就知道我们的拍摄肯定会很成功。

当我们正在拍的时候,一个老男人走进来。我们当时有点尴尬因为我们很害怕他是这个房子的主人但是我们没有经过同意就拍摄。(摄影师经常都会遇到这样的问题,因为没有获得同意去拍摄而惹来各种麻烦。这个世界上很多自由的和创新的心,但是也有很多讨厌的规矩吧)事实上这个男人的确是拥有这个房子!但是幸运的是他不但没有生气而且还非常友好的允许我们拍摄。而且是因为他我们终于揭开了这个房子神秘的面纱。

原来这个房子以前是属于一个老奶奶。好多年以前她住在这里,后来她过世了,于是把房子给了她的邻居John(我们遇到的那个男子)。John和她是多年的朋友和邻居。她没有别的家人(她没有结婚所以没有丈夫也没有孩子)。John得到这个房子之后一直没有改变里面的任何东西,更没有把它转卖出去。“我想要让它保持原来的样子,好像她从来没有离开过”,他说。

于是我陷入了深思。我环视四周,觉得所有的一切变得更加不同,不单单是因为我正在创造出来的艺术,而是,爱。友谊之爱。
