In the spotlight, a couple two years and a half together.
Tremor (Henry) is Ghanian but a resident in China, where he lives and speaks every day Mandarin. His mother tongue is Twi, of the Akan dialects.
Tatjana, although her passport spells Belgian, was originally born in Vietnam. Her native tongue is Dutch. They met in Guang Zhao, in what the locals call 'Chocolate City' (sic), which incidentally is the title of Tatjana's last photobook about her experience as a dual foreigner in China. She is a visual artist and videographer, he is China's first mainstream fashion model of colour with a Bachelor in Business.
They love in English and enjoy travelling together, usually on occasion of Tatjana's projects. Even though they live on two different continents, they keep in touch daily via texts.
They spoke to me of protection, the meaning of beds, and what is loving in any other language but your own.
