About this image

A lady poses for cameras on a highly polluted day in Hankou Bund, Wuhan. Looking south across the Yangtze River, the Greenland Centre is due to become the tallest building in China and the 4th tallest in the world on completion in 2019. On days where the air quality index reaches toxic levels, all construction in the city must halt.

From the series, Middle Kingdom, photographing people and landscapes that make up some of contemporary China today.
