Last Nomads of Inner Mongolia

This photo series by anthropologist-photographer A Yin of his Inner Mongolia home province speaks loudly about the changing environment, and about how the way of life in China is rapidly developing and modernizing. The idea of the diptych is meant to document and preserve the great traditions of his ancestors, where in the b&w photo you see the nomads of the past and in the color you see the future. You can read a full interview about the series on the New York Times blog for their Lens edition.
