Huachao Sun has been creating photography for more than ten years and is best at landscape and architectural photography. His works have won awards in the China Ancient Architecture Photography Competition and the National Wetland Ecological Photography Competition. He was one of the “Flower Weaving Dream-Wang Lin Photographic Posthumous Exhibition curators.” Also, he was one of the editors in “Canadian and China Photographers’ Collection – Special Issue on the 50th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between Canada and China” (English title: Art of Photography).” He is currently the Secretary-General of the Canadian Association of Chinese Photographers, a professional photographer who mainly focuses on landscape and architectural photography. Huachao pursues the resonance between the object and the image in his mind. He is committed to bringing a sense of presence to the audience.
In the early winter, ice freezes and later, it seems to get stronger. Its happiness seems to reach the peak of this season. No matter how thick the ice is, it will melt away as winter approaches its end and spring is coming. What kind of moods would ice have under its hard exterior in the late winter if ice had feelings? How would it face the shifted seasons, the nature changing, and the endless circle of life?
In selecting shooting scenes, I work with ice in a relatively large volume and unique texture within a larger space. Regarding the shooting timing, I use the ambient atmosphere to imply and explore the mood of ice at this moment. Besides that, I focus on highlighting the theme in the control of spatial relationships and do not deliberately pursue the harmony of the picture.
