Testimony

Chengyao He. Testimony, 2001–2002.

Description:
"Testimony" consists of three photographs. The first uses the image of my mother from "Mama and Me," in which she curiously crooks her head to look up at me standing half nude behind her. In the second photograph, I sit and my son stands behind me. In the third photograph, my son sits with an empty background behind him. With this piece, I want to express respect and care for weak and marginalized people whose lives continue on regardless. They are one part of history, a testimony to history.
