Flowers and Fruits 2nd Edition, Lin Zhipeng
In a conservative Chinese culture, Lin Zhipeng (Hayashi Shiho) aka No.223 has vigorously presented the spirit and activities of young people through photographs. He continues to portray the younger generation, who enjoy love and life, with joy, sadness, and playful images, swaying between sexualities.
This work 'Flowers and Fruits' is a series of photographs of flowers and fruits that he has taken as a motif of the subject. Flowers and fruits, which are very ephemeral but have vitality and beauty, will wither or rot someday, and have fascinated many people all the time.
He consciously treats flowers and fruits in his photographs, but looking back, there were many images that were unconsciously reflected. The collaboration of flowers and fruits with young people swaying between life and death is fascinating and captivating. The flowering time may be very short. The flowers and fruits that have that momentary brilliance can be said to be the same as the young people that he has been copying.
