I've been photographing this area in Guangxi province, China, since 2006 and witnessing the fast decay of the cormorant fisherman. The youngest fisherman are attracted by new and more profitable jobs, opening the way for the disappearing of a traditional craft and culture.
A boy left his bike chained to a tree when he went away to war in 1914. He never returned, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike. Incredible that this bike has been there for 98 years now!
The Stone Forest (Shilin), China Many of the trees within the forest in China’s remote Yunnan Province are rock hard, literally. The area, which spans nearly 200 square miles, was underwater 270 million years ago, and the sea floor was covered with limestone sediment. Gradually, the seabed rose and the water dried up. As rain and wind eroded the weaker rock, the stronger limestone spires began to take shape. Now they rise skyward, surrounded by leafy trees.
