China, Such a big and diverse Country, Where anybody who tells you they know China or is considered a "China Expert" well obviously has not been there long enough . These Images were shot from 2001 thru 2016,
Obviously the Shanghai set has the most images as that is where I lived, Some are shot on a Point and Shot, most with a 35mm and some on a Phase full frame back, 98% are were shot in digital.
China is a fascinating country, The Chinese people are in general a courteous and kind people, but being so many, it is easy to cite the the exception as the rule.
At this point I would be remiss (and a shitty person) not mention my shooting buddy Pat Belson, w/o whom the days would certainly have been tedious, certainly boring, and certainly not as creative, as we pushed each other to do our best work. I can certainly vouch for improvement on all, but maybe the creative aspect - on that point you can judge. So many people encouraged me, the list is too long, but to everyone I say , a deep, warm , thank you from the bottom of my soul.
I hope you enjoy the images as much I did making them.
Please click to your heart's delight!!
