“China is a country I lived and worked in and Sanya, is one of my favorite Chinese cities”. Lance loved it so much that he purchased an apartment on the Hainan Island, also known as The End of the Earth.
Vast open blue skies and deep azure sea, in seeing his Island works you’d almost believe you were looking at paintings of Hawaii.
In this collection, Lance juxtaposes stunning romantic scenes with more vibrant realities of destitute living conditions. Chaotic towns and rusty stilt houses in Chinese fishing villages, bringing life to the generations of poor people living on water. Documenting the fast paced street peddler to the solitary fishing boats moored in a Chinese lagoon.
