Li Jing likes photography, especially taking photos for animals. Over the past seven years, he has traveled to South Africa, Kenya, Mexico, Canada, Japan and other countries, even the Arctic, to photograph the animals he cares about.
This process is hard, because it demands not only capital guarantee and physical strength, but also courage and patience. It can be said that every appropriate photo is the result of his physical and mental torture and test, which is very difficult. He felt the animals being photographed, kept a distance from them, tried not to interfere with them, and maintained a calm observer posture. He had more empathy with them, when he withstood the harsh environment, because it is what the photographed animals depend on to survive.
During these years of traveling north and south, Li Jing's photography works has been fruitful. With his long-term care for animals and his animal photography works, we can feel the sentiment of all living creatures again and again. Looking at these photos, watching them love each other, we can't help but rejoice. Seeing them growing old and suffering, we can't help but wish them happiness. Obviously we are looking at animals, but it seems that we are looking at people and ourselves. The acquaintance with Mr. Li is still short, and we dare not say that we can know him well, but if we think of someone who can see the feelings of other creatures, he must have a soft and precious heart.
Li Jing is fortunate enough to do these things smoothly. Not only him, but each of us often needs to travel a long way, go to other places, and see different people, landscapes, and even creatures to feel the vastness of the world and our own humility. As a former sage said, "look up at the great universe, and look down at the prosperity of categories." It’s really touching to be in the wilderness, and to see the calmness of directly facing birth, aging, sickness and death, and the kind of love and dedication without any motives, from those creatures which have not been disciplined by human civilization. Looking at the gentle moments one after another in Li Jing's works, sometimes we may feel ashamed. As the spirit of all things, there are still so many hatreds, disputes and contradictions in our human family. At this moment, they are just a mirror for us, and we can see that we have forgotten all kinds of teachings of the sages about "regulating the family" and "sincerity". In this way, Li Jing's observation and photographing of animals over the years has undoubtedly taught him a lesson of "learning from nature", which is really worth it.
This exhibition, with 85 photographs displayed, are assembled into a small wish. Li Jing looks forward to making more people know the beauty of animals, care for those creatures and protect our homeland together. Even just for a while the thought of protecting animals arises in heart, it can be a precious seed. Just imagine how lonely our world would be if we lose them and can not see them any longer.
After a long journey, I came back to write this passage. I am grateful for the sharing that Li Jing has brought us. I hope he can share it with more people and plant the seeds of nature protection in more people's hearts. I also hope that Li Jing will make more good works on this road, make every effort to pay, and there will be good rewards in the end.
