Photographer Says Shen Yun, ‘A visual feast for the eyes’

“This is actually my second year of coming and I love it. I’m amazed at how much dedication there is to putting on this performance with the choreography and the music and the costumes and the orchestra, the rear screen projection … bringing this performance together and it’s incredible, there’s nothing else like it.”

“I’m a photographer so I’m very visual and it’s such a visual feast for the eyes, you know it’s truly wonderful.”
***
“I feel that they [the performers] have an inner focus and that they are really in the moment. They are totally in the moment and it emanates from them, you just feel it.”

“I hope that one day Shen Yun will get to perform in China, and I think that, that would be a great thing. A great thing for the company and a great thing for the Chinese people—for them to learn something about their heritage.”
