Have not posted for a while, so here is a shot of an old familiar place, just for you.

More experimenting moving away from "photographic" images and more to a form of impression left by scenes.

man and barrow in baishizhou

Two of my sons lived in Baishizhou for several years and I visited often, even now we return there to stay in touch with friends.

Baishizhou is a farming village swallowed over the past 30-years by the metropolis of Shenzhen. It remains, however, village-like in many ways.

The word is that over the next few years Baishizhou will be redeveloped, and so it should because many of the buildings are rundown, but I hope the redevelopment it does not gentrify rental prices and drive out the working people who live there.

I have photographed the community for the last seven years, this is one of those photos. Click the Baishizhou link for more, and check back often because I have hundreds more to post over time, and I will continue my visits and I will continue to document the vanishing village into the foreseeable future.
