China, through my lens.
Xiapu is a small historical fishing county famous for its tidal flat and kelp farming and in recent decades developed into a photography location. My first visit to Xiapu was in 2010 with fond memories and photographs of its mesmerizing landscape. The beauty of Xiapu, an insignificant county in China, needs no debate, but what draws me return over and over has been its people, friendly and kind local society, and a special place in my heart.
I am blessed to befriend with some iconic photographers of our time and rare privilege of traveling with some of them for photography in all continents. I have also travel with photographers, professional and amateur, around the world and this is a new experience to photograph with Mila Zhao, a 9-year-old local girl in Xiapu, Ningde, Fujian, China, and my favorite of the shots from Mila, in memory of my dear friend and mentor, the late Ko Sichi 柯錫杰 - my blog Cycle of Life.
