Bienes mundanos de familias chinas // Chinese families’ worldly goods (by Huang Qingjun)

Durante casi una década, el fotógrafo Huang Qingjun ha estado viajando a lugares remotos de China para persuadir a las familias rurales a sacar fuera de su casa todas sus posesiones y posar para él.

“La mayoría de la gente pensaba que lo que yo estaba proponiendo no era normal. Cuando les conté que quería tomar una fotografía y que para ello debíamos coger todos los objetos de la casa y ponerlos fuera, me pidieron muchas explicaciones. Pero casi todos ellos, al darse cuenta de lo que estaba tratando de hacer, entendieron la idea. No son como la gente de la ciudad, que tienen tantas cosas. Si les hubiese pedido a ellos que hicieran lo mismo, me hubiesen respondido que era demasiado esfuerzo.” – Huang Qingjun.

For nearly a decade, photographer Huang Qingjun has been traveling to remote parts of China to persuade rural families to get out of their house and all their possessions to pose for him.

“Most people thought that what I was proposing was not normal. When I told them I wanted to take a picture and to that end we would get all the objects in the house and put them out, I was asked many explanations. But almost all of them, realizing what I was trying to do, understood the idea. They are not like city people, who have so much. If I had asked them to do the same, I had responded that it was too much effort.” – Huang Qingjun.
