Yubai Li was born in Hangzhou, China in 1968 and studied at the Zhejiang
Academy of Fine Arts. He has been engaged in advertising planning and design,
as well as painting, but photography is his main interest.
He is new to photography, loves BW and does not care for the thecnical
aspects. He took photos of people in China’s Sichuan Liangshan Yi.
YUBAI LI says: “I think there is lot of feeling in painting and photography. I
put some feeling in painting and design and integrate this in tho my
photography. Photography satisfies my needs and express the image as. I feel
For YUBAI LI photography reveals the truth in all things and his is to have
viewers moved in some way.” I had to use my heart to feel the relationship
between man and nature, body, death, desire. I watched the faces, shoulders and
body language with fascination”.
YUBAI LI cares only for human beings, is interested in nature and things
around him ” scared to sing that sad, brilliant beauty.”

I was in tears by the end.
"Quack is a pejorative term, disparagingly, albeit sometimes defensively, applied by a member of the establishment, the orthodox, regular, professional, credentialed and accepted class to describe the unorthodox, unlicensed, disapproved member of a fringe or irregular group. It is a term of condemnation employed when one wants to belittle another. Above all, the term has become associated with the sellers of medicines and the marketers of medical systems, those with the "true" method of curing specific ills or, in an earlier day, all the ills of mankind.
While the origins of the term are obscure, the term “quack” probably came from the Dutch Quacksalber, a charlatan, mountebank, empiric or itinerant seller of medicine. It may also have been derived from the sounds made by a duck, the term applied to the hawker of nostrums whose excessive zeal in describing the merits of his or her cure may well have sounds similar to the squawking of a duck. The chatter of the quack, in most cases more like torrent s of words, would have been familiar to both town and rural populations even in the ancient periods, for quacks have long been well known in every society. Over the past four hundred years they have been representative figures in folktales, stories and especially in prints, drawings and political caricatures…” –William H. Helfand, from Quack Quack Quack
