Wuzhen, a town located within the triangle formed by Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai.
It’s a town in the south of Yangtze River Delta in China with more than 1300 years of history. The town is famous of it’s very old and ancient city where it’s the former residence of Mao Dun, a well-known Chinese revolutionary writer. The place was surrounded by a river, where there are ancient stone bridges connect one side to the next. The town was separated into few districts, where I did not manage to visited it all in just 2-3 hours time. I was too busy shooting there.
The silk dyeing is the most unique process I’ve ever seen. And the white and blue silk hanging on the bamboo stick was indeed very beautiful. Besides that, tourist can take a ride on the canal and cruise along the river instead of walking, but yet, me and my company choose to walk, as there is so much to see and shoot on the street, than cruising with the canal.
The ancient street of the town is totally the same with those I’ve seen on some old Chinese ‘kung-fu’ movie. It’s now so real in front of my eyes. Was wondering how does ancient people live in a town, without electrical appliances and technologies. And yet the town was still occupied by some of the old folks, well, with electrical appliances now for sure.
It is a beautiful ancient town, and it was an incredible experience to me.

Edie Sunday's images are mystical, dreamy and intimate. The 26 year-old photographer, who has been fascinated by film since a very young age, draws inspiration from the female form and explores a realm between the conscious and the unconscious by playing with color and light.
With only a large format camera, rolls of film and a tripod, a Chinese photographer biked his way from the coasts of Shandong all the way up to the mountains of Qinghai to photograph China's modern landscape.
Photo travelogues are often sprightly, the forms defined and the colors sharp. Réka Koti has a completely different interpretation. A location is a basis for experiments. Nature is a double-exposure detail or a nebular extension of her model’s frock. Branches and leaves are blurred to look like paint strokes. The outcome is mysterious, and Lomography can’t help asking: What is the alchemy behind these dusky pictures?
