"The story of migrating birds is the story of a promise, the promise to return." ——Winged Migration, Documentary by Jacques Perrin.
Migrating birds, they fly across many different places, chasing the sun, endless searching for food----many people in the world such as me doing the same thing, the endless search for finding the purpose of life, in different places. I call them the Migrating Birds. I am one of the migrating birds in society. As many of those wild birds return to the places where they were born, to raise their next generation, they back to their 'hometown'.
So this concept is also connecting back to my nostalgia/homesickness, with the support of those photographs that I took in my hometown in summer, they are about the locals' daily wear I saw back there as the rain cape wore by the bicycle riders or some of the traditional outfits worn by the senior citizen. Many of them are not chic, fashionable. However, there are many interesting details/wise of life hidden in their dressing, that is what I find fascinating all the time, all these elements together made a vivid, unforgettable living picture of local folks' life, homeland is my emotional base to allow me to explore further, just like these birds.
