The Image of the Silk Road - Tianshui Photography Biennale

FARMERS 农民

Wang Tong

About 30 years ago, China adopted the policy of “Reform and Opening-up”. Ever since then, this traditional, and also the largest agricultural country has entered a new era of rapid urbanization. China owns the world’s largest population of farmers, hence, as the process of urbanization went on, everything about them, images, temperament, character, how do they live and what do they value, has been changing slowly, yet continuously and utterly.
As a common photographer and witness, what I wanted to do, and what I have done during the past decades, was preserving everything I had seen and experienced in my photography.
