Amiko Li: Maiden Voyage
Amiko Li is a visual artist living between New York and Shanghai. He created a beautiful photo series titled Maiden Voyage over the past five years. This work is the diary of a vision of a magic world. These portraits, self-portraits, discovered still lives and florid fragments in Maiden Voyage form a private diary.
On Amiko Li’s series “Maiden Voyage,” photographer Tim Davis writes: “[It] is a probe, sent to the limits of photographic connectedness.” The images, diary-like in nature, together make an idiosyncratic view of the human experience. “Li draws together images that are strummed on the harp of one sharp-eared young romantic artist, but whose meaning together builds odd harmonic overtones as images pile up. This work is the diary of a vision of the world, not of a person.”
Maiden Voyage won PDN The Curator’s Award and Center Project Launch Award,
it was nominated MACK First Book Award, and presented at NY Art Book Fair, Toyko Art Book Fair, Polycopies at Paris, HK Photobook Fair, Istanbul Photobook Festival, and Shanghai Art Book Fair. The book is held in Haas Arts Special Collections at Yale University.
