Imagine ChinaTsvetelina Hristova '08
My ultimate inspiration for this photograph derived from the sentiment and affection generated at the moment of preparation for the shot. Although the oriental vibrancy of the colors easily overwhelms the eye, the image of the grandma, mother and her son invites us to share intimately an instance into the tightly connected life story of these people. The connection amongst them initiates us into the enigmatic world of Chinese women -- as deep and complex as the mysteriously enshrouded spirit of their ancient culture.
