Photographer's Note

Today I'm back to my Cantonese Opera series. I've previously posted a protrait of the "xiao-sheng"(the lead actor), so today I'm showing the lead actress or "hua-dan" in Chinese. The word "dan" refers to female characters in Chinese opera, and "hua" means flower which implies beautiful here, so "hua-dan" actually means "the most beautiful female character" in the show, thus of course will be the lead actress of the troupe.
I shot this while the actress was performing on stage. You might have noticed, she's the one looking into the mirror in one of my previous sepia photos. Look at the elaborated hair accessories she had, no wonder she needed so much time in front of the mirror :)
