Ritual of Father and Son for 3 Decades

The artist Tian Jun (now 56) based in southwest of China became a father in 1986. Back then he liked an idea to take the same photograph of himself and his son Tian Li (now 29) every year except 2014. Tian Li revealed them all on social media platform WeChat in July. This is the first photograph of them.

These black&white portraits of them have been taken every year since Li was born on Li’s birthday. The photographs quickly spread online after Li posted the series on social media platform WeChat and his post received more than 100,000 clicks within the first 24 hours.
