One of my favorite photography subjects is children in China. They are not only adorable, but they are rarely sad. They have a great respect for their parents and elders, which shows in their genuine happiness to be in their company, a welcome change to western culture. I think their happiness is tied to their love of family. Although in the cities, kids have the same exposure to technology as western children, they respect their elders enough to not let their phones or video games distract them from family (at least, not in my observations). In the countryside, there are no distractions and the kids are even happier. Happy with a stick or piece of cardboard. The good old days.
I have traveled all over the world, including adventures in China, Uganda, Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Argentina, Vietnam, Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, England, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic, Mongolia, Netherlands, Canada and Mexico! My greatest love is introducing Americans to the sites, traditions and people of China. My hope is to give travelers a new lens through which to see the world.
