In this project, human portraits and related side images are used together. These side images are thought of as keywords. In another sense they are key images and they give us clues about the living conditions, social, political, psychological conditions of the people in the portraits. These clues are sometimes abstract and sometimes sufficiently clear. The heroes in my photos are civil servants, peasants, refugees, children, activists, homosexuals, homeless people.
