Mother River - A Photography Journey down the Yangtze (2010-2014)

Map Drawing Dotted-2

The Concept:

Yangtze, the Long River, is China’s Mother River.
It is my Mother River.
I wish to photograph her,
From the source to the sea, at a precise interval of every 100 kilometres.
6,211 kilometres.
63 shooting locations.

The Y Points Shooting Plan:

1. Divide the entire Yangtze River into 62 equal sections on Google Earth, each section is 100 kilometres long. Mark the 63 dividing points: Y1-Y63.

2. Start from Y1 at the river source, locate each Y Point as precisely as possible, regardless the difficulty. Photograph only these dividing points with a large format film camera, whatever they are.

3. Repeat this process 63 times, until Y63 at the river mouth is reached and photographed.
