The Yellow River by Zhang Kechun

Over a three-year period, Chinese photographer Zhang Kechun documented China´s rapid movement happening along the yellow river. With his large-format camera, Zhang Kechun captured the environmental destruction along the river, through his wide shots the images feel surreal making its inhabitants seem tiny in comparison to the expansive landscape. The overexposure and softness of the images make the devastated river look majestic and calm, Kechun is faithful that the power of nature will override the destructive power of humans.
The power of humans is nothing compared to the power of nature, even when we try to change it.—Zhang Kechun
