from the series Made in China
photo taken from the night train Guangzhou – Shanghai
I have a conflicted relationship with man-made structures… So far, the most I have allowed into my image selections is a lane or a hint of train tracks. But I have always liked photographing them — the fences, the tracks and the grids of this world that can be seen from the train. I call the photographs motion studies, delight in the effects, and leave them out of the selection for my next exhibition. But not this time. This picture of the open foil tunnels with the plants growing in rows underneath simply touched me, and I am curious to see if you feel the same way.
