Mo Yi - 莫毅

What was your first shot ?

I shot scenes from my life and surroundings, some not particularly striking items that exist throughout the village of Caochangdi. 

How did your work, idea evolve ?

With this type of camera, photography has a sort of relaxed and playful approach--I think this is its nature. As such, after shooting a few Impossible films, I decided to use them to confront my life.

Are you happy with the result ?

It was very difficult to find a pattern, and not easy to control or master these materials. This influenced my enthusiasm for imaging and experimenting with the films. There were too many failed shots and technical problems.

What's next ?

If the image developing time for the film was a bit faster, it would increase my interest and confidence in continuing to use it.
