Inn China gibt es 220 Millionen Wanderarbeiter. Junge Paare vom Land arbeiten in der Stadt und müssen oft ihre Kinder zurücklassen, während sie ihren Lebensunterhalt verdienen. Viele, die sich weit weg von Zuhause kennen lernen und heiraten, müssen weiter arbeiten. Die Kinder bringen sie dann in ihre Dörfer zu den Großeltern.

Die Porträts zeigen Kinder aus dem Dorf Zhangmu, Chongqing, in Südwesten Chinas, mit der beliebten Lehrerin Fu Huaying oder allein.

The portrait series depicts children in the village of Zhangmu, Chongqing, in southwest China, both alone and with a much-loved teacher Fu Huaying. 

 

China has some 220 million migrant workers. Young couples moving from rural areas to work in the cities often have to leave their children behind while they earn money to support the family. Many who meet and marry far from home need to remain working, and so take their children to be looked after back in their villages by grandparents.

China cuenta con unos 220 millones de trabajadores inmigrantes. Las parejas jóvenes se trasladan de las zonas rurales a las ciudades para trabajar, a menudo dejando atrás a sus hijos, mientras ganan el sustento para mantener a la familia. Muchos de los que se conocen y se casan lejos de casa necesitan seguir trabajando, de modo que llevan a sus hijos a casa de los abuelos para que estos se encarguen de ellos.

Las imágenes muestran a unos niños en la localidad de Zhangmu, solos y acompañados por su querida maestra Fu Huaying.

La Chine compte quelque 220 millions de travailleurs émigrés. De jeunes couples quittent leurs villages pour travailler en ville et délaissent souvent leurs enfants pendant qu’ils gagnent de l’argent pour aider leur famille. Beaucoup, qui se rencontrent et se marient loin de chez eux, doivent continuer à travailler et confient leurs enfants aux grands- parents dans les villages.

Les portraits montrent des enfants du village de Zhangmu, au Chongqing, dans le sud-ouest de la Chine, seuls ou avec la bien-aimée institutrice Fu Huaying.

La Cina conta circa 220 milioni di lavoratori migranti. Le giovani coppie che si spostano per lavoro dalle aree rurali in città devono spesso lasciare i figli, per guadagnare il denaro necessario al sostegno della famiglia. Molti di coloro che s’incontrano e si sposano lontano da casa hanno bisogno di continuare a lavorare e quindi riportano i bambini dai nonni nei villaggi.

I ritratti rappresentano i bambini del villaggio di Zhangmu, Chongqing, nel sud-ovest della Cina, da soli e con l’amata maestra Fu Huaying.

China kent ongeveer 220 miljoen migrantenarbeiders. Jonge stellen die voor een baan van het platteland naar de stad trekken, moeten vaak hun kinderen achterlaten terwijl ze geld verdienen om hun familie te ondersteunen. Ook veel paren die elkaar ver van huis hebben ontmoet en zijn getrouwd, moeten blijven werken en plaatsen hun kinderen onder toezicht van hun grootouders in de dorpen. 

De portretten tonen kinderen in het dorp Zhangmu, Chongqing, in het zuidwesten van China, zowel alleen als met hun geliefde docente Fu Huaying.

A China tem cerca de 220 milhões de trabalhadores migrantes. Casais jovens, que se deslocam de áreas rurais para trabalhar nas cidades, têm frequentemente de deixar os seus filhos, enquanto ganham dinheiro para sustentar a família. Muitos dos que se conhecem e se casam longe de casa precisam de continuar a trabalhar, pelo que levam os filhos para as suas aldeias de origem para ficarem ao cuidado dos avós.

Os retratos mostram crianças da aldeia de Zhangmu, Chongqing, no sudoeste da China, sozinhos e também com o muito acarinhado professor Fu Huaying.
