Ding Ding

A mystery story about a lost girl and her road to discovery.

It was just another day in New York when Siqin Bian saw Ding Ding sitting with a friend, talking and laughing - but that moment changed everything. When she looked at her there were mixed feelings, "certainty, determination, careless and mystery in her eyes". She knew there and then that she wanted to photograph her.

"I believe Ding Ding represents a new generation of Chinese teenagers that know what they want from an earlier age and have the determination to fulfill their dreams. Three months after we met, she decided to take a break from school and went back to China. I might not see her again. She is a very mysterious girl", says Siqin Bian.
