I made my debut as a photographer while still in elementary school! My elder brother lent me his camera for my school trip, which enabled me to take my own photos and distribute them. It was such an empowering experience that it kick-started my lifelong love for photography.
Photography has opened many doors for me and allowed me to not just take in the spellbinding diversity of the world but also preserve its beauty through my unique perspective. My work has taken me to Tibet and the Silk Road, where I was privileged to interact with many minority tribes living in Yunan Province. I also spent time at the Mekong Delta and observed how the locals' lives were inextricably linked with this magnificent river. Such experiences have gained me recognition as a professional: I got to hold many exhibitions and author books that detailed my journeys.
