“I took this picture in Washington DC in 2018, during the Chinese New Year celebrations. It was a cold winter morning, but the sun was bright. I was walking around when I noticed a spot where the sun’s rays were uniquely aligned. I got excited and stuck around. It was crowded. But I waited patiently to capture the right arrangement of light, shadow and people. I took a few frames but this one stood out for me because of how the light and shadows accentuate the sense of separation and isolation in a crowded context with so much energy and movement.”
