I’ve uploaded a small edit of work documenting urban Kunming, Yunnan Province, China, capital of the country’s most culturally and ecologically diverse province. The streets are teeming with activity and development, but at what cost to the province’s main asset? The beauty and pristine nature of Yunnan’s hinterlands are a driving force to tourism and agriculture, the province’s main economic drivers. As the city pushes to compete against other more industrialized cities in the domestic and global marketplace, and as its population increases consumption, the blue skies may not survive for very long.
