Worth A Thousand Tears

Just made my daily trip over to EastSouthWestNorth Blog and his current post features a photo journalist named Maohair (毛孩儿) from Shenyang (about 5 hours north of here, and the capital of this – 辽宁 – province.

His photography is strikingly raw. It reads more like a CSI report than a portfolio, as most his work details the China that has just run headlong into a train, car, embankment, pot of boiling oil, etc. Needless to say, some of the photos aren’t for the easily disturbed.

A quick sampling (check out the original post for more):

[1] A father cries, his newly wed son and daughter-in-law were killed in a car accident. [2] The female passenger of the wrecked car checks her face before calling for help for the trapped driver.

The father of a boy just hit by a bus can do nothing but cover his face.
