Photographer's Note

Just a corner of any street in Qiansimen quarter, Chongging.
Wai, the bang-bangman rests for a while after his arduous morning work in the market. His wife is a street shoe-cleaner, they moved with their young son from the country.

Does Wai ever regret coming to the city? "No, my life is a little better than it was when I first got here. Then, I only earned 10 yuan a day. This city is changing so fast. It is getting richer. But our lives are not keeping up. Cities are good for the rich. If you have money you can do anything. If you don't want to carry something, you just hire a bangbang man."

I need a better title
