Impact of urban renewal on communities in China: A photo essay on the changing face of China’s ‘City of Eternal Spring
Kunming, the capital city of China’s southwestern Yunnan Province, was once renowned as the “city of Eternal Spring” due to its mild climate all year round. However, the city is currently undergoing a significant period of transition and urban renewal, resulting in the demolition of large areas and leaving many people living in old and ruined houses, waiting for resettlement.
As a result, pictures taken by Dominique Musorrafiti with a Horizon Kompakt camera, using Ferrania Solaris 200 and expired Agfa Vista 400 films, capture the poignant images of the city’s urban transformation and the daily struggles of those affected.
