Heroes of a Lego world by Jean-Louis Wolff

En route to his Shanghai studio (some 4000 km away!), Jean-Louis Wolff piloted his studio minivan along China’s Route 312, which parallels the Silk Road and runs east-west across the breadth of the country. He drove for days, local traffic long gone. Long haul trucks were the main customers on this asphalt path. These “heroes of a Lego world” had such character that they inspired a proper portrait session. An opportunity arose as they entered the Hexi corridor in Gansu province and happened upon an elderly couple selling watermelon from a roadside tent. The local hospitality and sweet refreshments (Jean-Louis quickly became their best customer) made this the ideal location from which to set up his tripod and lighting equipment, instead of sticking out all alone in the desert. The favorable weather conditions and picturesque cloud backdrop were also a plus.
