This neighborhood in North Kunming, China has been one of my favorite spots for photos. Around every corner is a new dilapidated building, an antique Chinese doorway, or a long abandoned house long abandoned overrun with vegetation.
The Ziebarts also love this spot, and having adventured in the neighborhood in years past, we couldn’t resist revisiting. A year later, and not much had changed. We encountered lovely smiling faces, unique locations for photos, some truly horrific smells & sights, and a lot of fun.
Quite determined to not have a posed photoshoot while I visited them in Dali, the Chongs did let me catch some moments of life while I visited them my last day of my 2014 trip to China (and even grab a posed photo or two).
Working with the DeepGreen Project brings me both personal and artistic satisfaction. The project provides work for women who have suffered injustice in SW Asia and pays them fair wages for their work. And each knit product is beautiful and well made. In the winter months, I am almost always wearing something from DeepGreen.

Wandered around downtown Kunming with this beautiful engaged couple in the Spring. So much happiness and love.
Wandering around a Chinese apartment complex with a beautiful & personable family. It was a beautiful day. I love it when I form a relationship with people through photography and get to know a family as they grow. I miss my China friends.
