A Month With You
Pre order only
This photobook is the result of a personal project that I engaged my mother to work with me in 2015. During the process, we took pictures of each other with the Fuji disposable camera for a month, there is no rule to the way of photographing. By doing so, I hope to create a collective memory between my mother and I, and to create a chance for us to understand each other more. The idea came from my relationship with my mother, which was very strange as I was separated with her for most of my childhood. However, I still felt that she is a very important person to me, so I decided to use photography as a way to bring us closer through doing this project. I also asked my father to participate in this project by photographing both of my mother and I in our daily interactions.
This book starts with a conversation between my mother and I, plus the images taken by us. It ends with a paragraph of my explanation towards our relationships and the process of working with each other during the month. In the image section, I separated the pages into a half: The images from the upper half were taken by me and the ones from the lower half were taken by my mother. My father’s images appear in both sections.
