The first image in the serie ENCOUNTERS - a selection of images of my years in Asia.

'This picture I made in a fish market somewhere in the maze that is Mongkok (Hongkong) first time I set foot in Asia in 2014. Overwhelmed by the surroundings, I stared with open mouth how the vendor chopped up a live crab picked out by the customers. His cigarette carelessly hanging from his lips. In horror, I - hypocritical western white girl - attended the funeral of the crab, until my friend told me to stop looking so shocked; 'it's rude'.'

RisoGraph printing is a Japanese technique released in Japan in 1986. It gives the feel of screenprinting and photocopying at the same time. A typical characteristic of this technique is that every print is unique and can sometimes be slightly offset.
