If you view the photo albums in your smartphone, what memories do you recall? A spectacular sunset at the coast in high summer, a lonely night after a breakup at railway station or the romantic first snow with your beloved ones? With all the unforgettable moments stored, photography allows us to go back to the scene and linger in the memory. One photo speaks volumes. When a feature film is condensed into one still image, how can the captured moment convey million stories behind? How can a still photographer present the soul of a film by a mere photo? Let's listen to the stories of creating photography masterpieces through our exhibition 'Tales of the Film Stills'.
