Wind of Okhotsk II

There is a limited train named “Okhotsk-no-Kaze (Wind of Okhotsk)” in Japan during every winter, which run across the land of Hokkaido. My trip was along this way, started from Sapporo and at last got Abashiri, the city located on the coast of the Okhotsk Sea.

These photos show my feel of Hokkaido’s heavy snow. silence, loneliness, time was frozen, and the snow made the city like a watercolor.

Two years after, I back to the Abashiri city and disorientated by the storm again. So I continued the project.


鄂霍次克的风 II
オホーツクの風 II

每到冬季,会出现一列名为流冰特急鄂霍次克之风的季节限定列车,疾驰横穿过大半个北海道大陆。我的旅途便是从札幌出发,直到鄂霍次克海边的网走。

作为一个在南方成长生活的人,在北海道的冬天第一次见到如此壮观的雪景,眼前整个世界是苍白的,城市被厚厚的积雪包裹住但又露出一些奇妙的细节,就像是无数次想象过的童话世界。一场接着一场的大雪改变了许多原定的旅行计划,多余出来了大把的时间让我无所事事地四处闲逛,并认真观察起每个城市在雪中的样貌。

雪是一种有触感的物体,充满体积感的白色将视野填满。当我在不同城市停留的时候,我会站在路边审视着风雪中的城市形态,每一座建筑,每一个行人都在雪景的衬托下变成了独立的个体,与周围的环境割裂开,变成一幅水彩画的某一个章节片段,他们是充满故事的,也是一段永远凝固的时光。

我希望这些画面能讲述一些故事,让他人感受到在北海道大雪纷飞中我所感受到的安静而寂寞的时光。

两年后我再次回到网走这座城市,又一次被暴风雪困住,在白色的城市中迷失。
