Attempting documentary photography and not feeling compassionate love for people would be pointless as far as I am concerned.

I love feeling the humanity in other people’s eyes, to guess at what they are feeling, to lock eyes with them even for a brief moment, to be part of their world for the time I that I am there and later again and again through their photographs.

With each visit to Yunnan, my connections are deepened and I feel compelled to return. Simplicity is a gem in our complex world of today, a fountain of peace to a busy and crowded mind.

More soon from this amazing region of China…

  2. Beauty lies in the “photographed subject’s” eyes?
    Well done Mimo. Additionally you are a master (mistress?) at catching children’s expressions.
    Merci!

    How I love this phrase : “Simplicity is a gem in our complex world of today, a fountain of peace to a busy and crowded mind.” A Mimo quote I could see myself use.
    Take care

  4. It’s obvious that you feel that way about your photos because the humanity shines through in every shot – that’s what makes them so striking and special.
