Blind Dogs, Fallen Men

In the shopping streets you are being bombarded with commercials and ads. The ideal Chinese woman is beautiful, takes care of one child and knows how to cook. The Chinese landscape exists out of green hills with preferable an ever lasting rainbow hanging over them and for animals China is a true heaven.The last months Tanis has been photographing in Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau. The image that is being created by the commercials is rarely seen. With Blind Dogs, Fallen Men Tanis wants to look behind the façade. He looks for elements that are often being ignored or seem to be invisible. With his work he can literally enlarge them and make them visible.
