Junyan Hu is a photographer from Beijing, currently living in New York. His main interests include the concept of language game, perception, and cybernetics.
The project stems from my attempt to define the term “authenticity,” while in the process realising the limit of such crass dichotomy between real and fake. Our perception is tainted by our past experiences. We are confined in time, blissfully ignorant of the future or the past. We play different language games despite using the same language. “Authenticity” therefore becomes an elusive term constructed by perception filtered through limitations.
The project is a collection of interlinking images that takes on the documentary style, yet contains little information that would potentially pin them down to a specific place/time.
