"Why my eyes are always filled with tears, because I love this land deeply," wrote the poem Land by ai qing, a famous Chinese poet. The words in the poem express his infinite love for his motherland. The motherland is a symbol and a place for me, as well as a woman. Mother. Mother is very great, brave, her will can be as hard as stone, her thin body can give us shelter, she may have an incomparable beautiful body shape. However, we never take time to frequently look at or care about the change of our mothers' body who gave us life and soul. I use my graduation video as a expression of my love for my mom, also respect for the origin of life. I objectify her body and magnify it, but I do not need to do any beautification. Every scar and scar on her body is like the magnificent beauty of the mountains and rivers, it is beautiful. Let her suffer the body of disease torments, every tremble in the lens tore my heart, this gave birth to my life place, in my lens blossoming glorious. The content of my final work show my sincere affections, they are the story of my heart...

Hi, I'm zhengyuan. You can call me Becky instead. I am a cheerful girl with broad interests, especially in terms of my major. My undergraduate course is from China's Central Academy of Fine Arts in graphic design. Combined with my familiarity for advertising, I dabbled in the fashion part, and then my first master's degree was in fashion at Central Saint Martins. During this time I have also been focused on my own photography, and video production. I believe that images are more vivid and more powerful than the plane of emotional expression. To say a few kind words about myself, I have my own photographic style and shooting angles. I also have a unique aesthetic, in terms of fashion. I have my own unique understanding and tolerance. Personally, I think it is the happiest thing in my life to do what I like, and I have a strong will power and continue to work with sincere and earnest efforts. I am very lucky that I have chosen the road of art, also I hope that I and my dear classmates will have a good future.
