I think it was three years ago when I first met Xuejiang. He had started his studies at the Estonian Music and Theatre Academy
with saxophone and because he chose to learn free improvisation, I became his teacher.
Over the years we had a lot of fun and also very intense lessons. He was a hard worker and even though we had some
language issues we understood each other most of the time. And let’s be honest – music was/is really the best language to have.
He knew I was a photographer as well and mentioned a few times that he would like to have some pictures of him.
When studying was done we talked again about the idea of having some pictures. He told me he would like to have at
least one good photo. I answered like I usually do – if we do something, let’s make the best out of it and do it well.
So we had a session and more than one picture 🙂
When I asked what kind of pictures would you like, the answer was beautiful and cool 🙂
At the session we improvised, so that we could have beautiful locations and also some cool looking portraits. We found
old train tracks and some abandoned buildings with walls that looked just perfect, so we built our own studio at the streets.
Thank you Xuejiang for all the lessons, music and laugh that we had together.
I wish you all the best and I’m looking forward to seeing you again on stage or offstage.
