Yip Qi Lai

This is Yip Qi Lai, from Songzhuang, China, a town of less than a 100 people, originally more than 600, it is one of the many examples of these county-side towns slowly disappearing as more young and able-bodied people move to the cities for work, leaving only the old and aging population in the villages. Yip is one of the younger men in the communities, at 66 years old, he makes his living mostly harvesting bamboo shoots and, at the ripe old age of 66, he will chop and collect about 1000kg of bamboo a day.
