aaduna Fall 2012 Cover Photo:  "Corruption of the Modern Snow White" by Yuge Zhou, Photographer (c) 2012

Corruption of the modern Snow White 现代白雪公主的贪婪

"The poison of greed creates an inner hunger so that we always seem to be striving towards an unattainable goal. We mistakenly believe our happiness is dependent upon that goal, but once we attain it, we get no lasting satisfaction. Then once again, our greed and desire will arise, looking outside of ourselves for the next thing that will hopefully bring satisfaction. Influenced by greed, we are never content. Living in this material world, people are greedy and obsessed with material things. But eventually, no matter how beautiful or expensive the material things we have are, they can all be lost or taken in the blink of an eye." - Yuge Zhou

*** We are looking forward to featuring Yuge's work in a gallery exhibition in aaduna's winter/spring 2013 issue launching in late February.
