Wu Jin by Ron See
Limited edition of 20 + 2AP
This photo was taken in front of the famous Forbidden City in Beijing. Ever since its construction in early 15th century, all the subsequent Emperors of China resided in this massive palace. The palace witnessed countless wars fought for the right to reside in the palace and call oneself an Emperor. Today, the tree's silhouette against the striking red paint remains the same and unchanged for 600 years while one of the most rapid and profound cultural change is currently happening in China. Merely 70 years ago, the red palace was still ruled under the last ever Emperor. The contrast between old dynastic China and the modernised China is one of the most interesting modern cultural phenomenons today.

About the artist
Marius Vieth (now known as Vijce) has by far been the strongest influence on me. I started doing photography by simply trying to copy his style. Although I think I have gradually moved away from him and have since explored different styles, he still has a strong influence on my street photos. Other than that, the only other person who I think has a strong influence on me so far has been William Eggleston's famous colour works. I don't think I ever really paid any attention to colours until I saw his photos.
