  1. These links are really great! I love the photo essays, and the Chinese factory pictures really surprised me… I don’t think I knew about the extreme conditions people live in there – their lifestyle seems so pre-formatted and robotic. It’s made me feel lucky to live in a free country (I guess I shouldn’t complain about traffic!)

  2. Hello!
    I have a question. I have to write about space in photography , and it’s hard to me to find some detailed themes about it. I’m a student of graphic design and I need it for my master work. Thank you.
