Back from Yunnan Province

M. Scott Brauer - A boy stands in the muddy streets of Sheng Cun, in Yuanyang County, Yunnan Province, China, while workers unload a truck full of concrete to be used to improve roads in the area.  Sheng Cun is translated as Successful Village in local tourist brochures.  The village is primarily inhabited by members of China's Yi and Hani ethnic minorities.

Apologies for the lack of posts on my part in the past week and a half. Had an abrupt trip to Yunnan Province in southwestern China. Part vacation, part work; I continued my ongoing project on China’s zoos, shot some work that will likely end up in my China Everbright project, and did short projects on agriculture, development of rural areas, and how China’s ethnic minorities fit into it all. There’s a teaser shot above, but it might be a while before I get through everything I shot over the past few days…

    I might do a followup post on choosing between pictures, using this shot as an example. I’ve got 3 shots of the boy, one with no eye contact, one with eye contact and more separation between the boy and the truck, and this one, which has the most emotive expression to my mind. Seeing this shot here now, I’m having second guesses on the selection.
