Black River - Heihe, China 2014

Heihe, a city located at the northern edge of Heilongjiang Province of China on the Russian border. For more than two decades, the border has been open for trades, where thousands of Russian tourists and traders visits everyday for cheap goods. And meanwhile, China importing natural resources from their neighbour to run it's supercharged economy.

This is a private documentation based on my experiences from living with the people. To witness how this cross-border trade has change the way people live their lives and also the environmental developments to accommodate their foreign neighbour.
