Artist's Description

Walking down the fancy and crowded streets of Beijing, a very modern and impressive city to say the least, I was fascinated by the hustle and the bustle of the crowds, not to mention some of the most modern structures in the world. My curiosity however directed me to small and ofetn forgotten side streets; entire areas hidden behind the glamour of the lights and sights and the sounds. The Hutongs – entire mini-neighbourhoods within the “greater” Beijing – offer more of a fascinating world that is mostly forgotten by the hands of time.

This shot was taken at the entrance to one of these Hutongs, very close to the Forbidden City. It was a very hot hazy, muggy and cloudy day with no definition in the sky, except for that bright red circle of a sun. This scene immediately captured my eye. The locals on these little often deserted streets must have thought I was nuts (which I know I am)!
