白云作词 代军演唱 《遇见你犹如花开》
Audio: Lyrics by Bai Yun, the song "Meeting You is Like Flower Blooming " sung by the Dai Jun
Throughout history, people's worship of mountains and rivers is more common than the worship of gods, and it is also more natural and profound. That's because they are connected to the blood of the "human" and have the same breath. In the ancient time when science was underdeveloped, the sublime or inclusive nature of mountains and rivers allowed "people" to realize their relationship with "people" while they were living with them, so that "people" began to realize themselves unconsciously, characterizing the mountains and rivers human feelings and endowment.
Confucius once said: “The wise man enjoys water and the mountain pleases the benevolent”. This analect has always influenced the Chinese people's thoughts and pursuits today. Therefore, we launched Mr. Bai Yun's "Mountain, Water, People" series of photography works, and added the creator's own poems before each of the group, which is to promote the concept of harmony between man and nature. Fascinating “people”, bringing charm to the “people”, so that we can gain the wisdom and happiness of life.
Professionals of the American International Photographers Union believe ：
"Mountain", has clear imaging and strong focus, and the fog has increased flexibility. The selected mountain views are imposing, with ups and downs. The postures, main picture, and the background scenery are all good, the tones are coordinated as well. The smoky fog makes the mountains that are set off by the buildings eye-catching and intriguing.
"Water" has a reasonable composition and clear imaging. It well displays different sceneries with water from different angles, distances, and heights which make them unique.
"People" is a combination of portrait photos of people at different times, different places, different backgrounds, and with different ethnic objects. From the perspective of a single piece of work, the composition, light and shadow of the work, and the expression of the characters are instantly captured in place, the movement and figure of people are captured naturally, which has a strong artistic appeal. The work expresses the joy and happiness of people in a harmonious society from different pictures. The scenes of the photos taken are different, but the themes are the same. In particular, several works with the old man as the main picture are full of life.
Famous poet, the vice chairman of China Poets Association, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of "Modern Art" magazine, Liu Changwen, from the article he published in the Sichuan Art Network---- “Chat about Mr. Bai Yun’s Talent and Cultural Personality”, the photography works were given the following comments: they often capture a wonderful moment and leave an eternal memory; the composition is perfect, the angle of view is unique, the use of light is clever, combining time atmosphere and thoughts into them, full of charm, pleasing people while leading them to contemplation and imagination.
Bai Yun's Photography Works and Ancient Style Poetry Appreciation
In chaos and unstability, God creates the world.
The calmness that people desire hides, the clouds and wind merge.
Laozi sees the fate, Confucius understands the behaviors.
No cause shall be asked, it is at ease no matter its position.
Observes close and damps, moisten grasses and trees.
Not welcomed by high mountains, leave marks on low-lying ravines.
Tolerant to the dusts, frank to the shadows.
Brave to the curves, balanced when full.
True self shows when pleased, easy if simple.
Do not anguish for the past, happiness is for who understands.
