I have been pondering on different methods and states of mind in documentary photography over the years. I then came to this conclusion, maybe only for this period of time, I simply want to participate. To really participate in the chain of events, to see what they see, to sweat with them, to take part and to document their intentions instead of prioritizing the perfect posture, the perfect frame and the perfect well told story. Documentation for dance piece "Purgatory" made by Hsu Chen Wei Dance Company.

RoHsuan Chen // Photographer The more life answered, the more questions heaved and tossed. Most of my works are about collecting and documenting fragments through a foreign eye, consciously selecting the anomalies from the routine and framing those instants into a personal fiction and yet a public true story. When moments are made monumental, subjects as well as viewers see the flickering verses echoing in their personal fictions.
