Incense and Devotion: The Sacred Rituals of Tianjin Temple


Amidst the sacred bounds of a traditional temple in Tianjin, a stirring scene unfolds in February 2011. As the incense burns, a woman bows in devout prayer before a grand urn, her three lit incense sticks marking her solemn pledge. The onlooking crowd, awaiting their turns, stands as silent witnesses to this ritual. Through the lens, a unique perspective is forged—her bow seemingly directed at the viewer, yet her focus remains steadfast on the spiritual act, crafting a compelling visual narrative between devotion and the world beyond.
