Li Hui's photography is like a dream filled with faceless characters. In fact, it is quite reminiscent of the scenes in "Inception" where Leonardo DiCaprio's character can never sees the faces of his children, even though deep down he desperately wants to. This same desperation, although not on the same level, is also present in Li Hui's work. It is as if you are strolling through these surreal scenes, just hoping to catch a glimpse of your loved ones.
Soft, sweet and innocent, there is definitely nothing menacing about Li Hui's faceless photography. Just looking at the images will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. With a particular focus on lighting and light leaks, Li Hui embraces the aesthetic of film photography, which gives each shot these pleasant feelings.
Li Hui summarizes her work beautifully in one line, "Sometimes a whole life is lived in a day."
