Time for the Holidays


untitled, Xitang, China 2008 copyright of Douglas Stockdale

Just to let you all know that I will be writing a little less frequently, while I take some time to enjoy the Holidays with my family.

Currently working on a slightly different body of work from China, urban landscapes of Xitang (Xi Tang), a water village (Hutong) about an hours drive south of Shanghai. Tentatively titled Mingxinpian, which literally translates as Picture Post Cards.

There is something about the resulting planes, forms and space that were created by the fallen snow that I find absolutely captivating.

Happy holidays and I wish you all the very best for the New Year, Doug

  1. There’s a whole lot going in that shot that appears at first glance to be so simple – I don’t have the vocabulary for it just now though.

    Hope you enjoy the break – here’s to 2009 :)

  2. Jules, Thanks.

    As I continue to look at my print of this photograph, I think that another aspect of interest to me are the patchwork patterns and the variety of details that are discernable within each patch.

    Cheers for the Holidays!
