PORTRAIT - SABINE & LEA, Shanghai, China

Rich family tapestry and rock'n roll expatriation.

Sabine is an academic that I met in Shanghai and with whom I collaborated. I am fascinated by her youthfulness and refreshing world views. Sabine and her two daughters Lea and Maya are totally at ease in the world, which they explore with utter openness and empathy. I was lucky to catch up with Sabine, as her younger daughter Lea was visiting Shanghai for the holidays. Lea was about to relocate to Hong Kong, from Montreal. We met on a rainy Shanghai evening in the Former French Concession.
