Photographer's Note

Nankou is a rural community in the north-west of Guangdong province, not far from Meizhou. It is populated by the Pan family who made money overseas and used (part of) it to build grand semi-circular farmhouses in their ancestral village. This style of architecture is reminiscent of the more famous tulou building across the border in Fujian province.

This is a detail, a corner inside one of those houses. Notice the bizarre, but typical shape of the window.
