For The New York Times

"Few areas of business offer as revealing a view of this socialist society’s lurch toward capitalism as the art market." In His Master's Footstep's is a component of the New York Times' interactive A CULTURE OF BIDDING." The interactive combines stories, graphics, photos and video to describe China’s growing art market, now the second largest in the world. While market is growing, it is plagued by forgery and corruption.

This component features artist Liang Zhaojin who says he “I am honoring Master Zhang by inheriting and promoting his style.” In China, the lines between replication and style can be very gray. In this short profile, Zhaojin talks about his feelings as an artist whose work is heavily influenced by his master's.
