After four children tragically committed suicide in Bijie, Guizhou, the subject of “left-behind” children has become a hot social issue in China. Photographer Liu Feiyue travelled to one village in Longnan, Gansu to document the lives of the children whose parents had left to find work in urban areas. CDB has re-published the photos and translated their captions with the permission of the photographer. The original photos and captions can be found here.
