    The Opera Singer

    When I was in Beijing in 1998 one of the things which struck me most was the friendliness of the people, and their openness – and remember this was 18 years ago, long before today’s leaders were in place. I felt very able to walk around the streets and photograph with no problem at all, and was often invited to sit and talk to people (especially older people) who seemed desperate to practice English with me. On one such occasion I sat with a group of elderly men playing traditional instruments and singing Chinese opera just for the fun of it in one of Beijing’s many parks. This gentleman had a particularly strong voice, and talked to me for some time in broken English about the state of the world, which is always a favourite topic of older men. This image was taken on my trusty Leica, and scanned from a colour transparency. Taken on a Leica M6 and scanned from transparency. Gerry

    The Crickets

    Back in 1998 I went on a package tour to Beijing with my wife, but the images have lain pretty dormant in my filing cabinet since. I am now going through some of my older work and scanning it, and I was particularly pleased with this one which was shot on Fuji Provia using an M6 and Summicron-M f2. The exact details have been lost in the annal of time, but I think it was taken in the Forbidden City and shows a man who has brought his caged crickets out to enjoy the winter sunshine. I remember reading that Marc Ribaud )Magnum) had gone to China to photograph the Tiananmen Square 'happenings' in 1989 but had been so fascinated by people in the cafes with crickets he missed the main event. This then I guess is a sort of tribute to him.
  3. I took this on a trip to Beijing in 1998 using my M6, and I have just scanned it to give it a new life. I am sorry but I have no details stored with the original, but can say that it was taken on Fuji RDP 100iso film. I hope you like it! Gerry
  4. I am continuing to scan and catalogue some of my transparencies from the days when I shot with a Leica M6, and this was taken on that camera in Beijing in 1998. I can tell you it was shot on Fuji Velvia but I have no lens/aperture details although I suspect it was the 50mm Summicron. Gerry

    The Chinese

    The Chinese believe in recording their every family member in meticulously recorded detail. These records are kept at the family home for generations, usually tended by an elder. I was very privileged to be shown this families records and, after some persuasion, was allowed to take his picture. But he only allowed me a few seconds and I had to work with what was available for light. Hope you like it. M9 with 35mm Summicron IV. If people are interested, I can post more of these travel portraits on this thread maybe. Or each as a separate thread? Mod advice please!
