17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Chinese opera actors
Taken during the Chinese New Year. I was doing a story about coastal fishing culture in Southern China (Fujian) when my driver and guide suggested we attend a celebration in a smaller town, Xiahu. Here I saw the opera in an old hall and headed straight to the backstage. I asked for permission to photograph (easy in China) and found/composed this unusual angle.
