The photographer Jingli Wu comes from eastern China. In September 2015, he travelled to Shanghai to participate in a Master Class with Chien-Chi Chang, Jacob Aue Sobol, Olivia Arthur and Thomas Dworzak, and explored the city with the eyes of a newcomer. “To be honest, I hardly know Shanghai. I was only a tourist here, but I always kept my eyes open and I tried to look at the city with an honest and undisguised eye.” During a stay of just three days, a series emerged that captured lively-coloured, bizarre details of everyday life in the megacity.

For Jingli Wu, photography is primarily a personal hobby, and the ambitious amateur photographer sees that as an advantage. “I’m still a novice in questions of photography. Even if I am deepening my hobby, and I have already prepared a comprehensive portfolio, I don’t want to earn any money with it. Maybe that’s one of the reason why, when I’m taking pictures, I always quickly gain the trust of people in my surroundings.”

Jingli Wu

Jingli Wu was born in Zaozhuang, east China, in 1991. He discovered a preference for photography at an early age, beginning to take pictures when he was just eight years old. Taking photographs remained a hobby at first. It is only since 2015 that he is beginning to consider it as something more, and taking classes with the likes of Magnum photographers Olivia Arthur and Jacob Aue Sobol.

The LFI editors became aware of Jingli Wu through the LFI Gallery.
