Borderland is an ongoing project deeply rooted in a personal history. Su revisits familiar and nostalgic places from the past after yearning a sense of belonging generated by living a somewhat nomadic life.
The images comprise an obsession with the boundaries between reality and imaginary, present experience and memory, isolation and belonging. Borderland is an intimate work of remembrance, tenderness and self-consolation.
Jiehao Su is a Chinese photographer, based in Beijing.
