The Beggar Returns

A follow up to this post, I am uploading a few more images of “The Beggar”, as played by 68 year-old Wei Qing.  Mr. Wei is a true performer, in that he comes to life on-stage.  In reality, he’s a bit of a recluse.  He lives alone is a small dreary apartment, stuffed full of the artifacts from his life.  He figures prominently in the upcoming photo-documentary.

  1. These are amazing!

  2. I think the last one says it all. It sums up so much in one portrait.

  3. Perfectly imperfect. I love it.

  4. Excellent work.

  5. Just wonderful Mike, really great, everything going for it… love it…

    R(etc… )

  6. Reminds me of an Hubei opera singer I used to see around the pedestrian mall by Haiya baihuo in Shenzhen. I think he was singing for money to have some throat surgery–his voice was seriously damaged, but it was still interesting to watch.

  7. Stunning, Michael. I can’t wait to see more.
