ride a bicycle to take pictures- The Bicycle Kingdom

Life on Two Wheels

Interview Wang Wenlan, Photo Editor, China Daily:

(play media)

I feel that bicycles have become a kind of life style for the Chinese people. China is often called the bicycle kingdom. I've traveled around China, including Taiwan, Hongkong and Macao and in the remote places and even the high snowy plateaus; there are traces of bicycles. Bicycles are a family necessity.

Like many other Chinese people, for Mr. Wang Wenlan, his bicycle is not simply a traffic tool but is an important part of his life.

Interview Wang Wenlan, Photo Editor, China Daily:

When my bicycle was broken, I felt like it was hurting, as if one of my brothers was injured and needed to be treated. So to me, a bicycle repair shop was just like a hospital. I felt really terrible when I lost my bicycle, and I couldn't sleep well. It felt like a big loss to me. Gradually, I began to feel that bicycles are like living things.

The first picture that Mr. Wang took of a bicycle was purely by chance but as more and more bicycles found their way into his photos, he found himself making the bicycles themselves the subject of his photography.

Mr. Wang said the more pictures I took, the more people commented that my eyes seemed to light up when I saw bicycle wheels, as if I was an addict!

In the past, Mr. Wang used to ride a bicycle to take pictures. Now, with the expansion of cities, Mr. Wang has bought a car for convenience. But every time he goes out to take pictures, he always takes a bicycle with him. AS he says, only when he is on a bicycle, does he find the inspiration to take pictures.
