The photographer does pushups at a place of topical significance. The Moment: The Case of the Fight at Xuri Toy Company in Guangdong. On 25 June, a brawl broke out between local Han Chinese and men of the Uighur Muslim minority group at a southern Chinese toy factory. An anonymous internet posting had claimed that six Uighur men had raped two Han women. A four-hour clash left two Uighur dead and 120 people injured. Weeks of inter-ethnic rioting followed.
