The opportunity of going to Tibet for shooting came from a choice made after Wang Taiping’s deep thought. He decided to re-experience the great successful career he had achieved for 20 years and tried to find the implication and power. Shooting in Tibet is usually the traditional destination and choice for a photographer : exotic culture, ancient history, Shangri-La impression, the mysterious religion, which au arouses the desire of lens. But for Wang Taiping, the decision for shooting in Tibet was based on his thinking: how to connect his new expectation for photography with the experience and thinking he is seeking for, lonely and difficult as well as the heart’s experience, so that on the exploring road, deviate from the confusion and skills for photography he has lost in the past, find out the real life for surveying life and society; it firstly needs to return to the firm and prudent inside, light the inner light, obtain the energy of thinking and action. So, Taiping went to the depth of Qinghai and Himalaya area. He walked and contacted the unique environment, life and people here, his camera was close to them -- the yogi, ordinary Tibetans, children in his lens were in Wang Taiping's line of sight that he observed, which showed their generous and calm understanding of life. The state of being is perhaps the hint for Taiping recovering his self direction, his photos has brought a kind of subtle experience for time, a sense of quietude by contact, with a kind of calm temperament, it seems that the staring brings out special halo and emotion – it is the survival predicament in the long history of time, the observation and record of warm power and finding the meaning of life, let a person can close and immersed in the mood of photos.
The first action to re-start, Taiping spent a long time for preparation, the start was also an adventure, because, contemporary art (Photography) work is inseparable with the opinion, understanding and action of the world. Taiping took action for his ideal, in order to meet the "Buddha’s light" of life and art, but we may not be able to see when we are looking for. The thinking and construction, the political understanding of the world and the practical thinking are the various barriers, which need to be tracked and clarified one by one. In addition, it is come out from the places of "See and not see" and the meaning of thinking and action we are looking for.
