Hello to all the people who read my entries about life, love and photography. I am back in Seattle and with my girlfriend Shawnee. So last time I have been in Seattle i was gay, now I am straight again. haha, nature. I am trying to work on photography reports, but also try to join my first competition (sorry, its in German). I think its definitely time to get into it. My thought is getting a job in Germany before I arrive. Well, I know what you think, but at least I can try.
I got published in a magazine called MAP as I told you, so here are the single shots, if you wanna see them: Basically I wanted to show that a class society in China is rising, especially in big cities like Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing and other big cities. Even though the thought of everybody is equal exists in most minds of Chinese people, the future in China looks different. Influenced more and more by western society, its very interesting to observe how those two different cultures are getting along with each other.
Since English is a must for every child to learn in more developed parts in China, everybody goes to an English class. David, the boy with the basketball, was one of my students and wants to become a professor for chemistry.
These two Ladies are neighbors in an old neighborhood in south of Nanjing. They hope to stay longer in their homes since the major of Nanjing decides to pull the houses down to build new apartments. This process of resettle people actually happens a lot in China. Especially in big cities.
Since education is very important and young people have to study hard, I went to the university of Nanjing to photograph the living space of students. Four to eight people live in dormitories together and share kitchen, bathroom, sleeping room and a room to study.
Since their is not only a middle and and a lower class in Nanjing, I went to visit David Lue, a dentist in Nanjing who was born and raised in Nanjing. He is definitely one of the upper class and enjoys a convenient life. Not to forget that he worked really hard to be there where he is right now.
Well, thanks for showing interest in those things and I hope you have a good day and wonderful night. Enjoy yourself.
