“Do you know where Zhen Zhen is?” Is it a name of a person, a sign of a shop, or a group of people living there? This image was taken in 2021 when the director was taking random pictures on the street and then she witnessed this place and these people that once existed, thus forming a strong bond with these strangers.
Tzu-Hsuan YANG, born in Taiwan in 2000, graduated from Taipei National University of the Arts with a bachelor degree in Fine Arts. She takes pleasure in strolling on the street, and her art medium isn’t limited to just one form as she always tries to look for infinite possibilities in life as well as images.

Before the outbreak in May 2021in Taiwan,I did a series of street shoots in Wanhua without any purpose at the time.I just wanted to photograph the environment that was far from my comfort zone.Then, I got the covid-19. During quarantine,I looked back at the pictures I had taken.I was wondering if the person in the photo is doing well now.I seemed to have a shared time with the strangers. When I returned to Wanhua, the scene was quite different from what I imagined.There were still people singing and soliciting on the road.But it seems that everyone has been replaced, and a shop with a high memory point has disappeared.So the idea of talking to them again was rekindled.With the question "Do you know where is Zhen Zhen now?" as the main storyline of the film, let residents tell their stories.
