Yong Sheng is a village that is very hard to get to. It is three-hour drive away from Lijiang, a very famous tourism destination in Yunan province.
Most of the local inhabitants cannot speak Mandarin; they do not go out to work in bigger cities. The children there do not know what a dream is and what they would do when they grow up.
We visited them before the Children's Day and organized a game setting on "the Future". When we spoke of a possibility of the future, we can see curiosity, confusion and hope in their eyes. So we painted their dreams on the black board and then they posed for a photo in front of it. (Photo source: People's Daily/ Wu Jiaxiang)
