Leiden, The Netherlands
Kevin Schoenmakers is an aspiring Sinologist hailing from The Netherlands. He often spends his time in China, always accompanied by his camera. The set featured on Kuvva are photographs taken in Chuandixia, a small village near Beijing constructed during the Ming dynasty. The town is known for its well-preserved courtyard mansions, of which some feature classic Maoist slogans on their outer walls. A photography enthusiast of five years, Schoenmakers' style is similar to photo-journalism, but sometimes goes the complete opposite direction.
