Martyr’s Park – Construction Laborers Housing (or Park Staff?), originally uploaded by Serenity in China.
While walking around in Martyr’s Park, Changhsa, Hunan province the other day I noticed this construction laborers’ housing or park staff housing compound.
Whenever I see these housing units I wonder about the sub-culture of the workers and their families. I especially wonder when I see these units in the middle of huge city street construction projects in downtown Changsha.
If I were a Chinese photo-journalist I’d try to do a project wherein the lives of the workers and their families were explored. Imagine coming to ‘the city’ from a small rural village to find work and finding yourself, and your family, living in these places . . .
