Lin Chi Pen aka No.223, Flowers and Fruits
Lin Chi Pen's work explores Chinese youth culture. Like the films of Wong Kar-Wai which inspire him, he describes the loneliness and emotional solitude of his protagonists with a romantic, poetic aesthetic.
Lin is one of the leading voices of his generation in the photography and independent publishing scene in China. Born in Guangdong, China in 1979, he lives in Beijing. His blog, North Latitude 23, has been running since 2003. "No.223" is Lin's internet identity. It was inspired by the character "He Zhiwu 223" in the movie "Chungking Express," directed by Wong Kar-wai.
