The Great Walk |
Chambers' students in China - quoting after Mao Zedong - said, "He who has not climbed the Great Wall is not a true man." Chambers climbed/walked part of it at Mu Tian Yu near Beijing, so he guesses he is 'part man'. The day he was there, he felt an intimacy that most visitors don't feel, perhaps, due to very few people touring the ancient barrier. He put together the video below to accentuate his experience. The video is filter-enhanced to show shadow detail of the steps and to blend Chambers and the wall as 'one'. The speed of the video is slowed down to dwell on the experience and to enhance the sound of the wind.
Chambers' stills of the Great Wall can be viewed in "widescreen" format at GWMTY 2005.
