Perhaps we have lived in the city for too long, busy for a long time, but more and more longing for beautiful scenery outside the city.
Recently, there is such a post 90s guy, wearing Hanfu, out of the busy city, traveling half of China for 6 years. He seems to have created his own Jianghu.
Under the waterfall, he sang, domineering and unrestrained.
On top of the immortal mountain, he was dressed in white, immortal bones, floating like the world independent.
Between the mountains, he stood in a Chinese dress, a magnificent painting of the motherland, spread out in front of him.
In the midst of the yellow sand, he leaned on his cane and was alone, just like seeing the back of the Tang monk when he took the scriptures.
Under the sunset, he played the Qiang flute and took us to appreciate the magnificence of the Hexi Corridor.
In these images, he seems to be a chivalrous man or a poetic literati.
His name is Konggu (空谷). He has long hair, wears hanfu, carries a Qin or hangs a bottle gourd.
Before becoming a photographer, Konggu was a painter. Since he was a child, Konggu has been fascinated by drawing and painting, often copying from textbooks alone.
After studying painting, he was particularly fond of Chinese paintings, not only browsing through the landscape paintings of the ancients, but also yearning for the poetic life of the ancient literati.
Originally, like many painters, Konggu should have been painting in a Zen-like studio. However, six years ago, after sitting in the studio for years, he felt that he had entered a serious bottleneck, and every time he lifted his brush to create, he found that he had no way to do it, but to copy other people's works.
After a period of trouble, he decided to get out of the studio and make a change. Since there is no inspiration, he went into the landscape to find inspiration, just as his introduction says: "Wearing Chinese clothes, walked around mountains and collected all the strange peaks to make a draft.
In 2016, Konggu began his journey. Unlike other people's travels, when Konggu first set out, he did not think about how long he would go and which places he would go to, and the whole journey revealed: "at large", "casual".
He sometimes stays in a place for a while, just like the locals, to get a feel for the area. Or a slow stroll, or find an inn to drink tea and read a book.
When the mood strikes, he will paint on the spot. At one time, it is not clear whether the person is painting or the person is in the painting.
In this way, one person and one backpack, with filming equipment, in the early morning when no one is around, or at dusk when there are few people. Looking for a good landscape or a good angle to shoot.
Every place he visited, he would mark on the map, and before he knew it, the whole China, only a few areas he had not yet visited. He has been wandering around for 6 years, and he has taken countless works. He uses the technique of creating Chinese paintings to shoot realistic landscapes, making simple landscapes as poetic, as paintings.
Plus, he was dressed in Chinese hanfu clothing into the painting, but also let the netizens sigh: this is too leisurely and enjoyable!
In Qinghai Heidu Mountain, it is as beautiful as walking into a realistic version of "Thousands miles of mountains and rivers".
In Tangqi Ancient Town, it is like unfolding a poetic painting.
In the Three Gorges Dam of Yangtze River, the rolling Yangtze River and the green hills on both sides of the river seem to be able to see the image of Li Bai leaving the White Emperor City.
In Emei Mountain in Sichuan, amidst the white snow, he is like a fairy immortal in the sky, falling into the people with ease.
In Luoyang Laojun Mountain, drinking soundly in the morning mist, sprinkling like a fastidious immortal.
In the Taihang Mountains, the layers of mountains and the raging sea of clouds are like walking into a landscape painting with magnificent waves.
In the Ten Mile Peach Forest, revel in the peach blossom forest.
In Wudang Mountain in Hubei, meeting Taoist friends who live in seclusion here, cutting martial arts, drinking and chatting.
In Detian waterfall, as if the "The Journey of Flower" of the immortal monarch.
In Guilin, sit in the middle of the mountain and watch the heaven and earth, and feel the clear stream outside the mountain from ancient times.
In Chenzhou Gaoyi Ridge, experience the game of Go at the top of the mountain.
In Qinghai Oboliang.
In Tengri Desert.
In the Qaidam Emerald Lake.
In Aiken Springs.
In the Pamir Plateau.
Konggu's footprints, all over China, his picture, presenting the motherland's great rivers and mountains, also let people marvel, respect!
In fact, the world of thousands of ways to live, but everyone needs solace, this solace can be money, can be companionship, can also be freedom and beauty!
It's like Konggu was uninspired to create before the trip. When he saw all the mountains and landscapes, inspiration was no longer a mystery to him.
Nowadays, he also loves to travel, and in addition to writing and painting, he will spend his free time traveling.
As he said: life should be more meaningful! And nature is the best Jianghu, the best mood!
