Me and Me
Me and Me documented a story of growth through life and creation between a couple of artists - Wenjun Chen and Yanmei Jiang. Meeting each other from 2007, we started to record each one's daily life unconsciously, treating the other one as a model in a photographic experiment. It came to a turning point in 2014, we tried to make a change in our life and work. We tended to shoot each other, self-portrait and group photo consciously, exploring and understanding ourselves in this relationship. That was how Me and Me started and also it was just a start. The project compiled the stories between us from 2007 to 2014, and also involved the experimental part of self-exploration and interpersonal relationship from 2014 to 2015. Finally, it displayed as a handmade book consists of four parts.
En Ning is one of the historic neighborhoods in Guangzhou. However, it could not escape from the process of urbanization. The reconstruction plan began in 2006, and constantly changing till now. We were more concerned about the people who were still living there. We talked to them and tried to understand their living conditions and the ways of life, to experience the traditional life style.
