Artist Statement:

Cranes are symbols of love and longevity in Asia. There are 15 species of cranes on Earth, only 2 species live in North America, but 9 species can be found in China, where photographer C. Mei is originally from. Currently a Houston resident, Mei has been photographing for more than two decades. In 2015, she was interviewed by the British media for her photograph of a red-crowned crane fighting against an invading eagle in Hokkaido, Japan. The story along with the series of photos appeared in major British newspapers including GuardianTimes, and later was chosen as Editor's Choice on National Geography's web site. She has since been photographing cranes non-stop. In her efforts to capture the beauty of the cranes, she has embarked on a journey to trace her roots back to China while discovering the wonders of nature.
