"It was in Paris, the day before I left. A first kiss, the first day of April, the taste of her lips and words close to my mouth: 'See you soon, somewhere in China.' She is Sephardic, lives in China and is studying the traces of the country's Jewish past. I am half-Jewish through my father and half-Catholic through my mother. When asked if my name was Jewish I always answered: 'No, why?' Yet deep inside, I feel Jewish. A few weeks after that first kiss, I traveled to Kirghizstan as planned. West China was only a few hours away by bus. Using phone text messages, she guided me around China, sometimes through sinister cities, one of which Jews had inhabited during the twelfth century. It was on her road that I would reconnect with my origins."
Patrick Swirc studied photography in Switzerland but left to follow a striptease artist to Paris. He has since contributed covers to Elle and Time.
