In the artist’s own words: “I took this photo on my high school graduation trip from Beijing to Guilin. We spent one day walking into this village without any transportation. Waking up at 4 a.m. and using 1.5 hours to climb to the top of the terrace mountain. The sunrise was amazing. This photo recorded my precious memory. My classmates were all looking at that incredible sunrise and this is the only silhouette of them by the light from the sunrise.”
