Image in p.11, taken in China in a rural area being constructed with highways and residential towers. With all these constructions as background, fronted with grazing land and building materials, the farmer-turned-worker at the lower right corner works quietly to recycle those still usable. He might be a migrant. With the very limited income, he may need to grow his own food every morning before his 12 hour-long work shift.
