Rather than describe the appearance of Nanjing’s central business district, I symbolize its energy and beauty by photographing the reflective surface of one of its buildings very late in the day. The enormous letters draw the eye and affect the emotions. To me, the golden letters suggest wealth. To those who read Chinese, they may well suggest something else. Surrounding structures swirl in the façade behind them, broken only by one window that is open and reflects the blue-sky overhead.
