Shadow puppetry performer Zhou Wei prepares the shadow puppet for the upcoming performance, Shanghai, May 14, 2012. Shadow puppetry is a kind of traditional Chinese performing art which uses flat articulated figures (shadow puppets) to create the impression of moving humans and other three-dimensional objects.
Although popular in ancient times, this kind of traditional art has witnessed decline in recent years. Zhou Wei has been working as a shadow puppet performer for decades and hopes to transmit the culture heritage to the next generation.
