Photographer's Note

Shot taken behind the stage of a tradisional theatre play during chinese ghost festival. The theatre is getting less popular and hardly find audience watching. This lady actor was taking a smoking break after her part was finished. Man at the background is the theatre musician.

That's a moment shakespeare poem comes to mind, " Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more..."

Dedicated both to the disappearing art and the committed artists.
