Finally! These came out from just a simple day spent with Yixiao and Kuangwei, who are both big time foodies as you might have guessed. For one reason or another, I seem to have a thing going on with couples who love food. When Yixiao briefly suggested at the prospect of shooting at their unfinished home, I jumped at the opportunity. I remember telling both of them that ‘we will be spending some good time there’, and we did. I absolutely love simple locales that don’t suggest anything beyond themselves; much like a haiku. It makes for photographs unique to the couple, rather than the run-of-the-mill ones we see everywhere else.
Yixiao & Kuangwei are an unassuming, down-to-earth couple who defeat first time impressions. You have to spend enough time with them to know that Yixiao enjoys prancing around, runs an intimate blog with many followers and that Kuangwei listens to some really mean indie music on his iPod. Which also reminds me that the camera, when used appropriately, has the uncanny ability to see right through people. Which is also why I love portraiture so much.
