The Oldest Silversmith in China

Maliau, China

  • I'm really looking forward to 2017, as my New Year's Resolution is definitely going to change everything for me. While I'm still not completely ready to reveal to you guys everything about my new journey - I will say that for anyone who has been following me and my work over the last few years should have a pretty good idea of what it is.

    In the meantime I want to share with another goal I set for myself for 2017 - to make better and more frequent photography vlogs about my work; videos that allow me to share with you, as much as possible. I’d love to show you what really goes on behind the scenes of my photoshoots and travels. In this video I decided to go back to southern China in order revisit the Miao tribes and their famous Silversmiths - Enjoy.

    Photographing 74 year old Master silversmith Li-Gong, and his 13 year old granddaughter, Li-Ley-Ling, wasn't easy.

    The silver workshop was dark, lit only by a small window and the television set. But sneaking in some 'fill light' from an LED light and trying really hard not to move the camera too much, we managed to get some beautiful images that I'm pretty pleased with.

      I loved this video! You have such a unique way of photographing and tell the story! I am thrilled to experience the village and the silversmith and his family! Thank you for bringing scenes from places in the world that most will never see in their lifetime!
