Photographer Says Shen Yun’s ‘Animation Is Very Beautiful’

“I enjoyed it thoroughly, I am very interested in the combination of the different form of music, instrument from the Western and traditional Chinese. I love the traditional Chinese music instrument with the two strings [erhu]. That is an amazing instrument and it was integrated well with the dance, it was wonderful. The beauty of the integration of the background, the flow of the characters in and out of the [background] to give it a mystical character, – I think it is wonderful.”
 

“There is spiritual aspect of it, the spiritual aspect of the music. That is how things come out and it is all connected.”
 

“Very beautiful, the way they are in and out of the [digital backdrop] scene, change of the scene, sometimes it look like photography. The animation is very beautiful, it added the depth to the performance.”
