Presentation by Witty Books:

" « I am like a waiter who was given a special identity. At this time, I may be a stranger, perhaps a maker of taste and emotion, maybe a peeper next door, maybe just a recorder using a camera to invade others. The young flesh came in and out. Our communication was limited to the narration of the shutter’s sound and an euphemistic dialogue. This is a colorful room filled with invisible desires and slow laziness. The body appears to be still, or just a dream, because it is not a strong oppressive relationship. »

Zhipeng, Lin (aka 223)

Lin Zhipeng is a Chinese photographer. In 2003 he creates a blog called "North Latitude 223", that becomes very successful, where he shares images and short texts. After many group exhibitions, his work is presented in solo shows in China, the USA , The Netherlands, and in many other countries. His work is a study on the body, on gender, on day to day life, liberty and innocence, nudity and sexuality, with a strong interest for colors and the frequent appearances of flowers and vegetal elements... Lin Zhipeng named himself "223" as a reference to the policeman character in the movie "Chungking Express" by Wong Kar-Wai. He has published many books including "Hidden Track" (Editions Bessard, 2016), "Sour Strawberries" (Editions Bessard, 2018),  "Flowers and Fruits" (T&M Projects, 2019) and "Grand Amour" (Witty Books, 2020). © Portrait by Adam J. Schokora taken from a 2015 interview on the Neo Cha website.
