Escape by Weiyu Li


I was inspired after watching a 1994 Hong Kong film named Chunking Express. In the film a girl named Faye is trying to escape from her true love by leaving HongKong for California, however, she returns to the city in the last scene and decides to give her love a second chance. It is easy to buy a ticket and leave a place, but it is hard to escape from our heart. In these photos I used lots of red since it suggests both beauty and danger, which is similar to what love is. The model was posing away from the camera to show her wish to escape. The vail represents an irresistible force that keeps bringing her back to her heart.
