I had already seen the photographic works by Mr. Shang Junyi before I knew him personally. It so happened when a friend, a young graphic designer working for the Forbidden City journal, recommended him to me, saying that his works felt different, especially those of the Forbidden City. So I took a look at those pictures and they did feel different to me, which was more so with those works that made a few places in the Forbidden City look quite mysterious. Those places I have never found mysterious before. After having seen the photos, however, they did begin to feel rather mysterious to me.
When I met Shang later, I did not find him mysterious at all. But he was a man of perseverance. Actually he has been so persistent he could sometimes even look mysterious. It might have been for this that I picked J 5 pictures out of the bundle he offered to me and published them in the section of "Impressions of the Palace" in issue No.2 2005 of the Forbidden City journal, with two of the pictures on the cover and inside front cover. Naturally the photographs I picked were those with a strong mysterious appeal to me. Shang once said that winter was his favorite season to take pictures in the Forbidden City. I believe that the palace buildings in winter chills and the light and shadow of the late sunrise and early sunset must be somehow intimately related with the sense of mystery Shang has always been waiting and striving for. I asked him to give his published works a title. He replied, how about "The Mystic Forbidden City"?
