JOE JO

Statement

This summer I began documenting my life in Beijing through a series of informal portraits of friends. I’d recently switched from a digital to a film camera, and found that I love the process of shooting on film. I shoot 4 rolls per month, get them developed at the end of the month, and buy four more rolls. I love developing the photos at the end of the month and seeing the emotions and remembering the moments, both good and bad. I’m not always shooting, but I’m always ready, and when I’m in a great moment I’ll shoot a full roll. Most of my pictures are from hanging out and partying with friends in Beijing, but they’re not all happy—they’re stories that I use to remember my life in this big, crazy city.
