Blue Man, Kunming China

Artist’s Statement

“Blue Man” is part of a portfolio of photographs taken around the world called 2˚ East, 3˚ West, an indication that they represent a record of all six continents. They are not defined by a single theme or subject or geographical location. Each photograph is allowed to reveal its own narrative by sharing a confidence with the viewer, opening its visual and emotional impact to broad interpretation.
