Grassland of human body Curves
DESCRIPTIONChina is famous for it Grassland in inner Mongolia but Xinjiang have the mot spectacular patterns of grassland I have seen and to capture it with the perfect light and story was amazing but let me explain to you what really I have to do to captured this image . First I have to fly from my home in Kunming in Yunnan Province to Xinjiang Province and the flight is around 5 hours one way so 10 hours round trip . then second step to rent a car and drove for 2400 km ,roundtrip , then sleep in Mongolian tent and wait until I get the right lighting then going back home . that is the life of professional landscapes Photographer , spending a lot of time on the road and you need sacrifice a lot sometimes or make choices to accomplish your dream . When people look your images they just see the image but they have no idea how long can be the journey and how complicated sometimes things are to be back home with a beautiful image.
AUTHORThierry Bornier is China’s premiere landscape and high fashion photographer. His career and reputation have surged in the last 5 years, with his work getting featured in The Telegraph, Wired, and other high profile publications. In 2015 and 2016, Thierry earned a nomination for China’s Landscape Photographer of the Year.

Thierry was not always a photographer though. In 2001, he began professional life with an MBA in finance and a CFO position at an international fashion company in New York. In 2007, he realized that number crunching did not satisfy his passion for natural beauty. He decided to change his career to something he truly loved—photography.
Without any formal training, Thierry dedicated his days to teaching himself photography. His first focus was high fashion photography, which gathered the attention of high profile models and celebrities. In 2011, he began exploring the entirety of China (his home since 2007) and photographing its stunning landscapes with his camera.
The key to Thierry’s success doesn’t just come from just technical know-how. Every time he travels, Thierry does more than just photography. He connects with people, cultures, and the landscapes themselves.
