There was a Photo
in me

Voices of water
scared of drying out
Hosted on a black star
Run through my fingertip
Let there be light

The photo in me
out of me  »

MA TE

MA TE is a photographer who does not communicate much about her person, she is based in Beijing. The Chinese characters she uses to represent herself and that she calls CAI is « a symbol of destruction but also rebirth ». MA TE self-published in 2017 a zine and a book in limited editions, both handmade and both titled "City of Dust", then in 2018 a large Leporello book with a cement cover titled "The Concrete Dream", and a second zine "I Often Be Asked How I Get Models" in 2019. In 2021, a new handmade title is released: "Papersky", which is - like "City of Dust" - a book and a zine.
