Inspiration comes to me from many directions. Sculpture, paintings, nature, and dance to name a few. When it comes to dance, I spend a lot of time going to live performances and searching the internet for recorded ones. One day I came across a performance that not only inspired my fine art photography but also my soul.
The 2007 4th annual CCTV dance contest held in Beijing included the performance “Hand in Hand” performed by Ma Li and Zhai Xiaowei. It is a beautiful piece made extraordinary when you consider Ma lost her right arm in a car accident when she was 19 and Zhai lost his left leg when fell from a tractor at the age of 4. It is better to view the performance than to read about it.
I am very fortunate being able to spend my time pursing my passion for creating fine art nude photographs. Along the way I come across stories like this one which move me on so many different levels.
