Hao Lei and Wei Bing

A chance meeting between a performance artist and a photographer allowed them to fulfill a long-held wish. Through the lens, they listened to the stillness, and through poetic movements, they perceived the distance between them and their inner selves. They soundlessly moved through this overwhelming world to find their true selves. This was not simply a photo shoot; this was a spiritual pilgrimage.
