'Walk the Line,' a sultry, monochromatic desert editorial by Yin Chao features the flawless Jasmine Feng for Numéro China September 2013. The desert journey evokes a sense of adventuresand search into the deepest recesses of one's soul. In this search, there is also a sense of serenity and harmony.

With the dominance of dark colors and Feng's furrowed brow, there is a feeling of struggle as she fights a darkness inside of her. In one image, she removes a large black cloak and waves it proudly behind her as if rejoicing at overcoming a great trial. As you peruse through the photographs you can see the hope in her eyes despite being shadowed by her hair. She lies on the ground in the desert in one image, not in defeat, but in relief as if she has found home.

The editorial is dark and strikingly beautiful with intense imagery. 'Walk the Line' encourages deep thought and so much is expressed despite the black and white photography.
