The Water Painter

Beijing, 2007

A man is writing Chinese characters on the ground in a park in Beijing. "Water calligraphy" is a favorite pass-time activity of the older generation of men in Chinese cities, practising the ancient Chinese art on streets, pavements and in parks. The water dries and destroys the work of art in minutes, reflecting the transient nature of life and the world.
