Ai Wei Wei: ‘bye ‘bye

Taken by Candia Dixon-Stuart as he left the NGV, Melbourne, Victoria.

Actually, he then took a photo of me taking one of him and he posted

it on his blog that evening (2015/2016)

I find the blacked out presence in the middle photo foreboding. He is so brave.

New book out.

Water Wall, NGV Photo by Candia Dixon-Stuart

In this photo I think I captured the tripod hood that the professional

photographer had been using for a photo shoot. It reminded me that

Ai Wei Wei had been seized and a black hood placed over his head.
