The visual art project "Photo without Photoshop" aims to explore the possibility of creating a surreal photograph styled with unique and fictional visual effects. Transforming our world to that of a fictional by constructing a photographic scene aided by lens, framing and visual techniques to stylize without the use of digital photo editing.

One day I recorded this little poem in a memo:
What is a reminder of the maybe of life?
There is no flower in the land
Maybe in the new air
As I walked through some of the nodes of life, I realized that the way I viewed the world had changed, and blurred behavior and symbolic consciousness became my new way of looking at the world, a process of self-avoidance and reconstruction. The unfocused unknown moment, the light and shadow kneaded into reality, blurred the edge to live, fixed uncertain surreal. Light and dark ups and downs, curve wraps, pour poetry, lost in self-built lies, to respond to a free space.
Hope that "I" disappeared in the works and words, emotions hidden in the air, let the color flowing in space to lie, rationalize the world's gorgeous, say a possible lie.
