beijing, july ‘11
i set my screensaver to my china-photo-folder, so everytime when not touching my computer for 2 minutes, the pictures from china come up on my screen. and every now and then some pictures stand out of all the rest. this one is one of these photographs. i think it generally resembles “my style” (f.e. compare it to the old woman in budapest). not too many elements, but a lot of free space. and when you start connecting the few elements in the picture here you might associate them to a battle old vs new, tradition vs progression, maybe youth vs age in general. i especially like the young girl walking through the picture totally focused, not paying attention to anything around her, with the headphones plugged in, in contrast to the environment, where you see quite a modern building that tries to imitate the traditional style.
