I have been accompanying Chinese artists, getting up close to them, following the traces they leave. By means of this closeness, I create direct photographic portraits of people who go their own ways, fathom their inner freedom and set style. There are encounters between West and East, between Germany and China.
Artists portrayed: Bian Yuan, Boer, Dong Dong, Gao Ping, Gao Yanjinzi, Li Binyuan, Liu Donghong, Tong Kunniao, Zhai Yongming
