Entry Description

After the 2008 big earthquake in Sichuan China, I traveled around in this province,especially those small villages, to find out the mental changes of their dwellers. I came to discover that they insisted to confess their misery to their gods, and to prey for soundness, even though the temples needs to be restored. Their piety forms a culture of life. So, I spent several months to take these images.
