Portrait of Chen Xiao Sa, 8 years old with parents and grandparents, Dong Da Jian village, Shaanxi Province.
Chen's grandparents are farmers and own a minute plot of land from which they derive a subsistence income. As a consequence of this Chen's parents are migrant workers whom live and have worked for years in the factories of Guangzhou city . They send back the income from which the grandparents and child live off. Since her birth they have seen Chen four short times, being therefore largely brought up by the grandparents a phenomenon that affects millions of working families across China's rapid industrial expansion.
