An ethnic Chinese lady bends over her wok while preparing lunch in Dali, in southern China’s Yunnan province. I simply love the way the decorative Chinese character on the wall parallels the woman’s body shape, reaching into the rising steam as she cooks. Photographer Oscar Tarneberg tells us that the painted character might be “cang” meaning blue, grey or ash, which I also find strangely appropriate for this shot.
