IN THE MOOD FOR LUNACY (HONG KONG/CHINA)

Is it possible to assess a population’s well-being judging only on its GDP ? Hong Kong is one of those world megalopolis masters of prosperity. But behind the lit up skyscrapers of the Skyline is played the movie of lives caught in devouring urbanization, overpopulated environment, breakneck pace, dictatorship of efficiency and overwhelming individualism. Everywhere in Hong Kong, streets are full of faces with void or seething eyes.

MAORI LAND (NEW ZEALAND)

In the 10th century, Polynesian Kupe discovers New Zealand North Island. There will arise a culture paying constant tribute to the land, a place where every beach, geyser or hot spring incarnates a divinity. The natural wonders of "The Smoking Island" will forge the soul of Maori people, until Europeans settle. Nowadays, after being dispossessed for centuries, Maori finally take up with their mother land again and the culture it gave birth to.

THE OKINAWAN WAY OF LIFE (JAPAN)

Many people have tried to unravel the mystery of longevity in Okinawa islands, starting with Qin Shi Huangdi, the first Chinese emperor, who was besotted by eternity. Nowadays, Okinawa inhabitants still have the longest life expectancy in the world. With the circulation of Dr. Makoto Suzuki’s study, who has become the reference on Okinawa longevity over the past 40 years, there is a growing interest worldwide in the way of life of those islanders.

PUTUO SHAN, GUANYIN’S SANCTUARY (CHINA)

Putuo Shan is an island considered as one of the four "sacred mountains" of Buddhism in China. It attracts particularly women, who come to call upon Guanyin, the legendary bringer of children. Here, they are each year more numerous getting back to the Divine. This massive return to the temple, after years of banning, reveals the ideological and spritual vacuum that Chinese society is now going through.

THE FOUR TREASURES OF THE STUDY (CHINA)

The Huangshan mountain range symbolizes "The" Chinese landscape. There is no place where the attributes of yin and yang are more palpable than in the Yellow Mountains. The holder of the "Three Excellencies” (painting, calligraphy, poetry) has always found there the perfect setting and tools for its portrayal. For centuries, this area has given rise to Xuan paper, the best brushes, ink and ink stones, called the "Four treasures of the study".
