Slideshow: Those Who Remain in Rural Zhejiang

A photographer from Haining City in Zhejiang presents his works of the countryside areas in Zhejiang on Most of the photos were taken during Labor Day, National Day and Spring Festival in 2006 and 2007. Through these photos, we see that most of the younger generation in the rural areas have flocked to the cities. What’s left are old people, women and children. In some of the photos, we can see old people still work very hard to make a living, instead of being taken care of by their children like those in the cities. However, even though the younger generation who become migrant workers also work hard in the cities, many of them still don’t get paid or get paid late from the employers.
