White Crane Spread Wings: Tai chi on the fragrant harbour

White Crane Spread Wings is the rather poetic name of a particularly graceful tai chi movement. It also happens to be the name of Hong Kong-based photographer Grainne Quinlan’s photo series. The Irish photographer freeze-frames each movement with the click of her camera, transforming the motions into one vivid portrait. The result is whimsical, voyeuristic, bemusing, but above all, artful.
