Started October 2014 as a personal research and inspiration about destructed areas, after thousands of kilometers traveled, the project amazingly reached a new level focusing on moving deeply to very undeveloped villages lost in China to bring the light on these places full of history. Also areas deserted by most of parents moving for bigger cities and jobs leaving the children behind them, a major problem of urbanization.
