YWWIL – #1427

Marcel Meyer’s  “You Work Where I Live” project continues to fascinate me, despite the fact that his temporary gallery has closed and he’s back at university.

Of all the portraits, one (two, actually – there’s the analogue colour  and the digital monochrome) that really stood out was of Xiu Yung Seng of the Gu Tee Haus at Klarastrasse 33.

For the simple reason that she was one of perhaps 2 or 3 who radiated happiness and the ONLY one who beams out of both images.

And she replicated it for me.

After the usual “Oh, I look TERRIBLE and my HAIR’S a mess and my FACE is so fat…”

“So? Let them see that you’re 5 months pregnant and they’ll understand”

  1. I love the project and this particular portrait.
    You can tell Xiu Yung Seng she’s got the sweetest smile and she’s very lovely.

  2. What a beautiful smile! I am fascinated by the project too JB, wish we lived closer and you and I could do some damage! You smooth talker you! I think you could talk your way in and out of a place with the best of them!
