Figure/Ground > China > People


Man waiting at a highway rest stop.

I'll never forget the first time I set foot in China proper. (This was a few years ago) I had just taken the train from Hong Kong and had crossed the border into Shenzhen. Upon leaving the Shenzhen train station, I was greeted with a sea of Chinese people, hundreds of them, squatting all over the plaza in front of the station, with a cop standing in the middle of this throng of squatters screaming at someone about something. The contrast between Shenzhen and Hong Kong was quite a shock to the system.
