I Miss You Already.

Untitled Self-portrait (Touch), 2010. © Shen Wei

I began to photograph a self-portrait project during my Rockefeller residency in Italy last year. In the past 9 months, I have continued working on this new exciting adventure. The best part of making this project is to gradually rediscover myself through honesty, openness and freedom. The courage of making this project comes from what I have learned from my previous projects.

You can view the project at my newly updated website:

A selection of the self-portraits will be included in an exhibition open on this Thursday.

Listen.

Solo Concert, Chengdu, Sichuan Province. 2010 © Shen Wei

The sound is screechy and loud, echos the entire walkway. I was the only audience, she didn't even know. She was singing a love song, a song for her lover who travels far away. In a sunny afternoon of Chengdu, only this lady singing alone at the coldest corner of the park. I couldn't help but stop and listen. "Please bring me along, please bring me along ..." She sings.
