Shanghai, China, 2015
This photograph, taken at the entrance of a Shanghai subway station, reminds us that art can be found everywhere, even in the most difficult of circumstances. The flutist, dressed in a coat made of pieces of fabric held together by metal wires and strings, playing barefoot on the frozen pavement, symbolizes the determination and passion of the artist in the face of adversity. It reminds us that the true beauty of art lies in its ability to transcend obstacles and rise above the difficulties of life. This image invites us to reflect on how we can find beauty and meaning in the most difficult moments of our lives.
