Life of a migrant worker
18 images Created 17 Jul 2013
These are 24 images of 20 year old Migrant worker, Chen Qing. I shadowed Chen for 24 hours and documented his life at home and at work. Hailing from Yancheng, north Jiangsu province, he now lives and works in Kunshan, a city neighbouring Shanghai. He moved here for the higher wages. Chen works in a clothing factory and has the main duties of operating the sowing machine and making button holes on shirts. Every month he earns 3200 yuan and has just two days off. Chen rents his own room for 140 yuan per month.
