Ai Weiwei is an artist and political activist that I greatly admire, that I have the utmost respect for and that I have made a point of photographing one day, much sooner than later.

“Ai Weiwei’s Appeal ¥15,220,910.50″ was produced by the artist’s studio and opens with Ai Weiwei’s mother at the Venice Biennial in the summer of 2013 examining Ai’s large “S.A.C.R.E.D. installation” portraying his 81 day imprisonment.
