Photographer's Note


Children’s best friend

To this little girl who is tending the water buffalo, domestic animals are their friends, toys, transportation to ride, and tractor of their parent or family inheritance. No wonder why I don't see a cow-shed, chicken coop or pig pen or buffalo stable here. They live together, even though the smell of manure is so strong along the alleys. It's a natural life, to the extreme of its meaning.

In this Hani minority tribe of Qingkou near Yuanyang, people share the residence and the life with their animals.
