Borderland is a complex body of work. Through autobiographically documenting his homeland, Jiehao also manipulates it: reclaiming it, making it his own, and seeking comfort through reconnecting with its past. Many of the photographs are marked by a tension between two opposing themes: fiction and reality, belonging and isolation, present experience and memory – perhaps a reflection of his conflicted past.
