Shot of the Day #85

In the latter half of 2014 I found myself in Shanghai, China for a few months, living, studying, working, playing and lots of drinking! Thanks to a good friend I was lucky enough to work with some of the best in the Shanghai wedding industry, in particular CCLiang a very talented photographer and pleasure working alongside. The photograph below was taken in TaiZhou a city in ZheJiang Province roughly four hours south of Shanghai. The Bride and Bridesmaids are making their way to the grooms home while friends and family shower them with confetti, and a lifetime supply of firecrackers lay a red path of debris. This photograph neatly depicts my experience of the modern Chinese weddings, a day of total excess and exclamation. For me the experience of playing a key role and being welcomed into a day most often reserved for close friends and family is something very few foreigners have, and for a day it unveils a whole culture. I just can’t believe I didn’t get shrapnel in my eyes!
