Village life in Taihang Mountain

Traditional villages, the sites of traditional Chinese culture and deep nostalgia, are dying fast in China with rapid urbanization and industrialization. In his photographic works, In the Distant Mountain Villages, photographer Wang Shuzhou keeps a record of the people and folk life of villages in North China′s Taihang Mountain in the 1980s, which is rarely seen in today′s China.

People living in the Taihang Mountain have cultivated and harvested this land for generations, but live a hard and frugal life.

Elders of the village have a smoke and chat. Photographer Wang said that he especially liked the seniors and children of the mountain and felt very excited to see them.

Some villagers take a rest on the winding mountain road, with their luggage scattered around.

This photo shows the tranquil and quaint atmosphere of a mountain village.
