China in black, white and red

The beginning of China Red, Pingyao:

6 AM. That morning I woke up earlier than expected. It was Sunday morning in the Ancient City of Pingyao, and as anywhere else in China weekend means crowded. Therefore, I got on my boots, took my camera and went out for a calm morning walk.

The city was like a picture in black and white: Dim light and grey sandstone-constructed buildings.  Although there was something else… Red! This realization is the foundation of this project and since them I have been studying, capturing and even developed a specific preset for this trio-color composition that captures the essence of China.
