The jury only awarded a consolation prize to this work of reportage, but I had voted for it to win third prize. I like the sepia tones used to show children on the Burmese border, as the rest of the country develops around them. These people of the Bulang Mountains were photographed by a “local,” which only increases their interest.
The Bulang mountains are near the border of Burma and China. The great landscape attracts many photographers, like the Chinese photographer, Li Junwei, who visits here from time to time. He said he enjoys the life in Bulang mountains. It is like a wonderland, the people are pure and friendly to him.
