What happens when the crowds go home? That’s what Stefano Cerio investigated for his book, Chinese Fun. The Italian photographer has traveled to off-season amusement parks in Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, and Hong Kong after the summer swarms have gone to see what remains.
Via The Atlantic.
“The Yangtze River, which forms the premise to this body of work, is the main artery that flows 4,100 miles (6,500 km) across China, travelling from its furthest westerly point in Qinghai Province to Shanghai in the east. The river is embedded in the consciousness of the Chinese, even those who live thousands of miles from the river. It plays such an important role in both the spiritual and physical life of the people.
More people live long its banks than live in the USA, one in every eighteen people on the planet. Using the river as a metaphor for constant change, I have photographed the landscape and people along its banks from mouth to source.”
