Another in the postcard series about a Chinese professional dancer corresponding with an American film director on the long and interesting road to eventual marriage. The dancers ancestral village of Dazhengzhao is situated on the endless prairie that runs below the Yellow River in central China. Hard winters and dry summers have shaped the people who lived here for thousands of years. The dancer brought me to the village for a week - one of the most singular experiences of my life, from which I derived a photo book, this postcard series, and a string of inexhaustible memories that usually appear very late at night to summon me from sleep. The handwritten text reads: “In this late time of year night comes fast, houses good for shelter but not so much warm. When cook fires go out the village sleeps. The ground becomes hard and river ice appears. Families close their second door and disappear.”

Henri Manguy One wonders whether it was you who wrote the text or whether it is from the hand of this dancer of which you speak, which is perhaps real or perhaps a fiction...

Tina Fiorenza Hello Jared,
It really like the light, still a little ray of sunshine lights up the house and space at bottom on the ground, offering the warmth that belongs to the family in harmony. The moon is over the house as if to give protection.
Very nice, for me one of the most emotionally intense.
Best wishes and many good wishes for a Merry Christmas Jared.

Dana Winkelman Jared. Finally a moment to contemplate. I have been waiting for a moment to look and think on it. I can feel the ground becoming hard as the river ice appears. The piece captures that coldness but it is also comfortingly familiar to me. I used to bird hunt with my grandfather, father, and brothers on cold winter mornings and when we were done we would feed the cows. It has a strong association for that time and place for me. It is as if I can see past "the second door" into another time. Really special for me. All the best. Dana...
