The People's Health (Hiatus)

China is a country of haves and have-nots. In the city, people have access to good health care in good facilities, but in the rural countryside, people have to scrape together what they can to pay-as-you-go for the most basic of services or, at times, lack-luster hospital care. Many times, rural Chinese provide their own healthcare through traditional Chinese Medicine and family inherited methods of care.
This is an ongoing photojournalistic meditation on the state of health in the rural and suburban communities of China. The state of healthcare in China's hospitals, clinics, traditional Chinese Medicine shops, shaman's tents, etc., is reflected in society, in homes, on Chinese streets and on the faces of those looking for care. In the second largest economic power, who are the faces of rural China's ever changing health care landscape?
