Li Hui: No Word From Above

March 14, 2018

Chinese photographer Li Hui's newest series and book, No Word From Above, continues her exploration of intimacy, light, and nature. "Sometimes different words may essentially have the same meaning, and the same words may point to different concepts," she says. "A certain ambiguity can give people more room to use their imagination. What I want to show is the sheer diversity of nature and life, that even though society promotes uniformity, human interaction can overcome social constraints. I try to explore or even create the unknown, and focus on visible but easily overlooked intimate details, observing and maintaining this awe of human nature and complexity."
