Li Hui

continuing with Flickr Fridays! i have noticed and admired the work of Li Hui for years on Flickr, so I was surprised to find that i had never actually done a post about her before (cannot keep track after all these years i guess). she is a self-taught photographer who only uses film. something you might notice is that her subjects never show their faces, and she gives a reason for that in this interview:

My pictures never shows faces because I think this is a way of communicating with the viewer. The pictures remind us of our common feelings, secrets, past memories or magical dreams. The people in my pictures are not supposed to be unknown faces, but the viewer him- or herself.

browse her dreamy body of work at her website, tumblr and, of course, flickr.

all photographs by Li Hui.
