* Personal Data

Yao Zhang, born in Shanghai
some while ago grew up to become a
Weltbuerger, globetrotter and nomad
of the 21st century.


A blind old fortune teller once told him
long time ago he would travel to faraway places
carrying some metal on him...

That time, no one could have guessed
in his wildest dreams, that it was to be
neither knive nor money,
but a camera accompagnying him everywhere.
