Jiehao Su has been working on his series Borderland for already two years. His images reflect a time of drifting and discovery in eastern and southern China and documents a life not dissimilar from his own childhood in suburban Gouangdong. After the loss of his mother, at the age of 18, Su found himself rapt in a nomadic state of being, travelling from city to city, documenting what he saw at a sensitive distance. Confronted and increasingly curious about issues of family, homeland, identity and existence he developed a series that seeks to represent a version of home telling narratives of remembrance, tenderness, and self-consolation. Fascinated by the boundaries between reality and imaginary, Su creates images that merge the spheres of fiction and nonfiction and draw into a mellow world that nourishes from experience and memory as well as from the feelings of isolation and belonging.
