Anhui Buildings - Traversing China

Posted by Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 25 August 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Anhui Province is characterized by its grey-themed buildings and also by the many houses that are completely constructed using wood. This mansion in the image has been construction with wood, and only wood. It's warming to see such a culture been passed on over all these years, but with the advent of technology and modern cooking environment, I must worry about the consequences of a possible fire.

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it. (John Loengard, "Pictures Under Discussion")

To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt. (Susan Sontag, "On Photography")
