A Greying Society - The Forgotten Faces of Contemporary China
The foray into rural China brings us into a world of a greying society.

Inundated with the universal celebrations of youth and beauty (as well as changing demographics), the country has lost its connection to its aging population.
These portraits, a reflection of the nation’s history, offer a last look at a largely forgotten (and quickly disappearing) portion of the nation's people. They are but the forgotten beautiful faces of modern contemporary China.
