Ai Weiwei photography speaks to the masses about the freedom of expression. Ai Weiwei is a famous Chinese artist and political activist. His contemporary approach to art infuses every medium with ancient methods and modern influence. He is the voice of his country and a resilient figure. Weiwei has previously been arrested and restricted from participating on social media. He refuses to accept defeat and proves to the world the unifying nature of fighting for what you believe in.

The powerful captures shot at Ai Weiwei's Beijing studio were done by London photographer Jamie Hawkesworth. Hawkesworth was able to snap portraits of Ai Weiwei, his personal home/studio and the guards who have constant watch on Weiwei and his place.
