I don’t know what to say about Yimou except that I love his stuff. The first photograph below, titled Shanghai Natural History Museum, simply floored me (click here if you want to see a really huge version of it). I hope to talk to Yimou soon and ask him a few questions. Like, who is his photographic guru or why the moon always has to be blue. And there’s this important question, how the heck does he get his TriX in China? And yes, stupid things like why he’s photographing, doesn’t he have anything better to do with his life … like … i don’t know … yeah, very important questions. For now, enjoy his work.
