Photographing Work in Xian Show

It’s time for me to step out of my cave and get some more blog work done. Life of a photographer does not simply always consist of “roses” and nothing more. There is much more to it, like running around a lot and socialising a lot in between takes. And for me, it often requires traveling to foreign countries. Of course, all this can be great fun, but it can also be very exhausting. That’s why not that many photographers are active bloggers. Or at least, that’s what I believe.

It’s interesting that they keep sending me to China, to visit and review all this amazing stuff. Despite the recent flight “accident” in the airspace of Ukraine, people who travel continues to increase. The reason why I call it an accident is because it is far from being resolved yet, so I wouldn’t like to put too condemning names on it yet.

So, there I was in the not capital but something as important or even more important in the history of China than Beijing. Yes, you guesses right that this time it was turn for Xian to show itself what it was made of. My job, was to bring photographic art from the city that would then be used as promotional material in Europe and the States. And for some reason they keep on being actively crazy about the performing arts and nightlife scene in the city.

I went to see a show that takes you to the times of the Tang Dynasty in China. For those who don’t know their history, was an imperial dynasty located in Xian. Which also happened to be the biggest city in the world at that time. So you could say that it has pretty central and significant purpose in the history of the world.

The performance had it’s spirits shot up the roof, all with Chinese style grace and a melodic peace played by a live orchestra. In fact, this was rather refreshing after all the show life from Shanghai & Beijing! I let the pictures speak for themselves or for the lack of my own great words.
