Photographer's Note


Close Relationship

In this Hani minority tribe of Qingkou near Yuanyang, people live with their animal.

To these two boys who were feeding the water buffalo, their domestic animals are friends, toys, transportation to ride, and tractor of their parent or family inheritance. No wonder why I don't see a cow-shed, chicken coop or pig pen or buffalo stable here. They live together, even though the smell of manure is so strong along the alleys. It's a natural life, if you don't mind!

Witnessing this style of living, my companion has been "frozen" and failed to shoot any picture. Back home later when I asked him why, he confessed that he was under such an emotion about other people condition that he cannot photograph anything from Qingkou.
