Displaced

 

Many people in China live separated and far away from their families. The number of migrant workers is estimated at around 200 million and many of them leave their families behind, only to see them for 3 or 4 weeks a year during the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year).

 

This photo is a photo montage of different people at TaiYuan Railway station. Perhaps the people in these photo have nothing to do with the story above, but I couldn’t help noticing that many people at the station had a hard time saying goodbye. I made this photo montage to visualize a feeling of displacement and missing loved ones.
