Journey to a Chinese fairy-tale land
The Yangtze River is the longest river in Asia. Its vastness is really impressive and in Hubei, where it flows through the Three Gorges, the massive rock formations will surely make you feel small.
And who would have thought that a lazy stroll along its tiny tributary – the Ming Jang River – would take you to a Chinese fairy-tale land? On a little boat, holding a paper parasol, sat a young woman dressed in a traditional, hand-embroidered gown - so charming and mystical…
But where is she going? Where did she come from? Emerging from the fog, she looks like she has always been there – part of the nature she belongs with.
Kinga Litynska POLAND
My name is Kinga Litynska. I am a traveller, author and self-taught photographer. As a dreamer and a realist – with my backpack on my back and my camera in my hands – I choose my own paths. They might be narrow and slippery, and yet, they are mine, proving that what once was merely a dream can really happen...
It has been ten years now that I have been living, working and traveling around Asia, taking photos – exploring its boulevards and backstreets, oceans and deserts. Soaking up the unknown splendor of sights, smells and sounds that this all-encompassing continent has to offer.
From Poland to Kamchatka in The Far East I got hitch-hiking because where the horizon ends, adventure begins, opening the door to the natural world and encounters with native people whose ordinary lives – happiness and sorrows – I passionately capture through the lens of my camera.
