[Love] Summer Portfolio 2011 – 柳州路,闵行区

Mother And Child, Liuzhou Road, Minhang District, Shanghai China June 2011

It all comes full circle with the first awkward rush and the cry of “妈妈!” from a 3 year old girl. The helper in my place had not seen her daughter for nearly a year; Having left for work from the province of Hubei, she is one of the migrant workers making the age old sacrifice of leaving her family behind in order to provide a better life for her child. Looking into her daughter’s eyes, I wonder about the future challenges for this young girl, but for now at least she had found happiness.
