All the images were shot on various 35mm cameras with color print film
that passed thru Xray machines at least 4 times. I've found that it enhances the grain structure to my liking. Yuki
sent me a stack of CDs loaded with pics for me to go thru and edit into a coherent body of work for another show. I sifted
thru the cds, and 9 cds of 24 exposures giving me 116 images to choose from. All of them were good, but there were 80 that
were interesting, and 20 that were outstanding! ---I. H. K.
( initially, Yuki thought none of the pics were anygood, and was all
cranky about them, so i put them to a song called " The Grand Love Song" by Chinese Canadian composer, Lee
Pui Ming. in this moving image format, somehow thru my mind's eye, the images flowed seamlessly to
her music, it was a match made with the blessings of the Gods. I was thinking that if he could see them thru my selective
vision i could bring out his passion for photography that he thought he'd lost.
After Yuki viewed the movie, he commented that
" it made me cry, it was so perfect, how i was thinking about shooting in China, it really captured my memories" .
